Resources for Parents

August 12, 2013

Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are also parents have a large number of responsibilities, and often don't have as many opportunities to get together with their fellow students.

Facebook group
Graduate students have started a Facebook group for graduate student parents and their partners

Email list
We're starting a new email list for graduate student parents, to allow you to connect virtually  with other parents across the university, and to let us know what other kinds of resources you might need to support you. And yes, your partners/spouses are also welcome to subscribe to the list.
