Details and registration.

Many of UIC’s students are parents but are invisible to the rest of the campus community. Join the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center and Campus Advocacy Network for a conversation with Katrina Washington, a recent UIC graduate, to learn about her journey as a student-parent. The conversation will address a variety of areas: competing responsibilities of being a parent and a student, the obstacles and stigmas attached to becoming a parent while enrolled in university, and the ways she negotiated all of these to realize her goals and dreams. Come to learn; leave inspired and ready to make change.

All UIC students, staff, and faculty are invited — especially student-parents! Join us in person at 1700 SSB or via Zoom.
