Parent Supports@100%: Innovation 7
Engaging Higher Education
The projects presented in the ten innovations areas are all designed to address barriers to vital services. Action teams should review all projects and prioritize those that have the best chance of addressing the barriers identified in the 100% New Mexico countywide survey. Your collaborative and result-focused local work is nothing less than heroic.
Project: Parent Supports.7.1
Project 1: The “parent u” project
Just like with K–12 students, colleges and universities can be great places for parent support programs, including research and facilitation of training parent educators. It’s worth inquiring whether the local college or university devotes any time, research or other resources ensuring students and staff have campus-based parent supports available. This project assesses all colleges and universities in the region to measure support.
