March Soup & Substance discussion on student parents

Posted by Maria Fleck, student representative, Office of Community Engagement on Monday, Mar. 7, 2011

The University of Minnesota, Morris will host its monthly Soup & Substance discussion on Wednesday, March 30, 2011, at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Center’s Alumni Room in Oyate Hall. The event provides an open forum for members of the campus and community to discuss issues of local, national, and international importance, particularly issues related to privilege and oppression. Soup & Substance pairs a delicious free meal with a meaningful discussion. The March gathering will address the issue of college students who are also parents.

A student parent will be sharing her experiences and recent research to start the discussion. The aim of this dialogue is to create opportunities for more support for student parents.

Hosted by the Office of Community Engagement, Soup & Substance is open to all who wish to share their opinions and experiences. Everyone is welcome to join the discussion and enjoy a free meal. Childcare will be provided.
