Invitation to Share Experiences at a Sarah Isom Center Forum on Parenting, Child Care, and University Life

Posted on: November 5th, 2015 by kcozart

parenting forumThe Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies invites our UM community in all its diversity – students, faculty, and staff – to share their individual experiences about what it means to balance family life with education and career demands.

The Center’s aim is to create a space where all voices are heard and respected. From this gathering, we hope to understand more fully how the University of Mississippi can better serve the needs of its parenting population. At a later date, we intend to convene a second forum where we outline potential strategies for long-term change. Thank you for helping us make our campus a more parent-friendly environment.

For those who cannot attend, we are also collecting stories about these experiences and invite you to submit them to us at with the subject line Parenting at UM.

Noon – 1 PM Tuesday, November 17th Faulkner Room, Archives and Special Collections, Williams Library (Note new location).
