Campus celebrates “Bring Your Kids to College Day” on April 25

The UC Santa Cruz Student-Parent Organization is gearing up to celebrate "Bring Your Kids to College Day" on April 25. Inspired by Take Your Child to Work Day, this event aims to provide a platform for student parents to showcase their academic pursuits while also acknowledging the joys and challenges of parenthood.

In preparation for the event, student-parents who plan to bring their child to class are encouraged to notify their instructors ahead of time. This proactive communication ensures smooth coordination and fosters a supportive environment for student-parents within the university community.

UC Santa Cruz recognizes that students as parents face unique challenges and often have competing responsibilities between their work and home lives. More information on the resources and campus programs that are available to support student-parents can be found here
