ACCESS Collaborative Community Chats

The Ohio State University ACCESS Collaborative is continuing the conversations that began at the virtual symposium on a monthly basis. Each month, ACCESS Program will host a Zoom meeting focused on topics and discussions relevant to parenting student support and success.

The goals for the monthly Community Chats are to:

  • Discuss and have meaningful conversation on topics pertinent to the success of parenting students in higher education

  • Give attendees the opportunity to network and stay connected with other higher education and community professionals serving parenting students

  • Build momentum leading up to the 2021 Student Parent Support Symposium!
