Resources for Student Parents

Children’s Learning Center 

The Children’s Learning Center is committed to supporting children and their parents by using theory-based care and learning practices. Through playing, interacting and communicating, the UWM Children’s Learning Center is committed to the growth of each child in all aspects of their life. We believe in not only providing education, but also providing a supportive and safe place for your family to grow socially and emotionally.

Life Impact Program

The Life Impact Program assists disadvantaged parents in their efforts to attain a higher education. The program provides participants with a renewable scholarship as well as academic, professional and personal support. Program scholars have access to a Life Coach team who serves as a first point of contact for all concerns. This team follows students’ progress, assesses their needs and provides them with resources, workshops and/or referrals to other on-campus or community programs. To date, program efforts have resulted in 85% graduation and retention rate for the 234 UWM student parents that have been served. Of the program graduates, 100% have reported employment and/or are seeking advanced degrees within 6-9 months of graduation.
