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 clearninghouse for resources and programs dedicated to supporting student parent success.
Programs sponsored by the TRC include coordination of priority registration, social programs, peer support groups, and referrals to on and off campus services. The TRC has also developed a Student Parent Manual for undergraduate student parents to develop goals, reflect on progress, learn about the experience of other student parents, and find resources.
Special Announcement: Early Childhood Lab School and the Transfer and Reentry Center receive the CCAMPIS (Child Care Access Means Parents in School) federal grant, beginning Fall 2021
The Early Childhood Lab School (ECL) and the Transfer and Reentry Center (TRC) have been awarded a federal grant to offer subsidized child care slots at the ECL, and wraparound support through the TRC for the parents as they work to complete their degrees while raising children.
The program is open to undergraduate, graduate and professional students who are eligible to receive federal Pell Grants; however, priority will be given to undergraduates and those with the most need, including low-income, single parents.
The funding is from the U.S. Department of Education’s Child Care Access Means Parents in School, or CCAMPIS, program.
The child care slots and wraparound support will be available beginning Fall 2022. Applications for participation will be accepted beginning Spring 2022 - stay tuned for more details.
