National College Transition Network Launches College Success for Single Mothers

By NEBHE Staff

Single mothers make up an increasing part of the postsecondary student population in the U.S., and a growing movement has emerged to better understand and address their unique set of challenges and experiences.

The National College Transition Network (NCTN) at World Education launched College Success for Single Mothers, a three-year project that will help eight community colleges identify the needs of single mother students on campus and develop and expand key practices and services to enhance their success in college and careers.

Building on the findings from its 2019 report, No Matter What Obstacle is Thrown My Way, NCTN will partner with the national group Achieving the Dream and the Endicott College group that developed of the Family Friendly Campus Toolkit: Using Data to Improve Outcomes.

NCTN will release a call for applications in the spring of 2020.
