There are almost 4 million current college students who are parents with dependent children. These students balance multiple roles, and additional student support may positively impact experiences and outcomes. This study involved online surveys of 100 NKU students to learn about how they perceive the campus environment and student retention as related to student parents. Anticipated results are that student parents at NKU need more to support their academic success. Findings from this study are relevant in advocacy and program development related to campus education, support, and resources to impact outcomes and retention with student parents.
