Student Experience with the SPHC
"I cannot thank you enough for your help and guidance with this. As I told Stephanie on the phone yesterday, your work and assistance to student parents is invaluable. I am a well-resourced, mid-30s graduate student with a planned pregnancy and ample personal, social, and financial support. Still, navigating pregnancy and parenting in the academy has proven to be more challenging than I could have ever guessed. After we spoke, I felt heard, validated, and like I had regained some sense of control/wasn't just lost in the sea of unanswered emails or dismissive responses. I hope that you both know how important your resources and supportive ears are for students of all ages and circumstances. If you ever need an advocate -- you've got one in me. "
(Teresa, Graduate Student)
