As part of it’s work with reentry students, the TRC supports and advocates for the needs of primarily undergraduate student parents. The TRC also collaborates with key campus partners - the Women’s Resources and Research Center, Student Housing, WorkLife, Aggie Compass, and the Early Childhood Lab School - to serve all student parents.
The TRC and WRRC, as part of the efforts of the Student Parent Working Group, have created a virtual hub for undergraduate, graduate, and professional student parents at UC Davis. The Student Parent website serves as a central clearinghouse for resources and programs dedicated to supporting student parent success.
TRC-Sponsored Programs for Student Parents
- Babysitter Directory: The Directory connects current UC Davis students with children who need babysitting services with current UC Davis students who are interested in babysitting. Please be advised, the TRC does not screen or evaluate the sitters who register with the Babysitter Directory. Families are encouraged to screen potential babysitters and satisfy their own due diligence when hiring a sitter. The TRC is not responsible for coordinating or negotiating job opportunities. All care arrangements should be negotiated directly between the sitter and the family, including rates, job responsibilities, house rules, caregiving preferences, etc. Student sitters will be contacted by the TRC annually to make sure you still want to be on the list and to verify your information. If at any point during the current quarter you would like to be removed from the babysitters list, please contact the Student Parent Working Group at email@example.com.
- CCAMPIS Student Parent Scholars: program offering free or discounted child care spots at the nationally accredited, on campus Early Childhood Laboratory (ECL) and individualized support and mentorship for student parents through the TRC. The program is funded by a federal grant from the US Department of Education awarded to the ECL and TRC; participation is open to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students who meet the eligibility criteria.
- Priority Registration: Undergraduate students with dependent children and students who are caregivers for adult family members can apply to receive priority registration (an earlier Pass time).
- Student Parent Manual: info guide and workbook for undergraduate student parents to develop goals, reflect on progress, learn about the experience of other student parents, and find resources.
