Becoming a Parent While Pursuing A Graduate Degree: Panel and Workshop

Many students debate whether they should have a baby in graduate school or wait until their lives and careers are more established. This session will help you make a more informed decision about what it means to start a family, including:

  • A panel discussion featuring a faculty member and graduate students who are raising children. You will be able to hear firsthand about their experiences for integrating studies and careers with raising children.
  • Hear about programs and resources available for students who are starting a family: University and Government leave policies; Funding options for pregnancy/parental leave; and resources for new parents.
  • Self-assessment; you will have an opportunity to explore your own readiness to start a family.

Presented by the Family Care Office, the School of Graduate Studies, and the Gradlife Program.
