Student Parent Success Program


The Student Parent Success Program (SPSP) assists UWM student parents in their efforts to attain a higher education. The program provides students with professional and personal support by providing them access to a support team who serves as a first point of contact for all concerns. The SPSP team assess students needs and provides them with resources, workshops and/or referrals to other on-campus or community programs. SPSP is a centralized, multi-purpose campus resource where student parents can seek advice, develop leadership skills, and build connections with other student parents at all UWM campuses.

“The Student Parent Success Program supported me through my transition from community college to my graduation from UWM in May 2021. Although I have been involved in several school appointments and programs, nothing compares to the support and relationships derived through the Student Parent Success Program.  As a student parent involved in the SPSP we are encouraged and offered opportunities to check-in, learn, grow as a parent, scholar, and professional, and improve the trajectory of our lives in so many ways!”
