Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women

Student Parent Initiatives

The Eberly Center launched Student Parent Initiatives to support student parents and develop an institutional structure of support here at UToledo.


Student Parent Initiatives is a growing effort to increase awareness and campus support for student parents through co-curricular programming and events. In addition to co-curricular programs and events, the Eberly Center has convened a campus-wide Student-Parent Task Force to collectively identify on and off-campus resources and advocate for our student parents.

The Eberly Center is a family-friendly space on campus and we would love to meet your little (or not so little) ones! Feel free to bring your children with you during any visit to the Eberly Center.
