Western earns slot in project to help single mothers succeed in college
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Western Technical College is one of eight community and technical colleges selected through a competitive process to participate in College Success for Single Mothers.
The goal of the three-year project is to identify the needs of single mother students and develop a plan to expand key practices and services to enhance their college and career success.
“Students bring their whole selves with them to college, and in order to serve students well, we need to consider all of their roles and identities,” said Kari Reyburn, Western’s Equity, Inclusion and Community Engagement director.
“We are excited to examine and develop ways we can better serve and achieve college success for single moms at Western; removing barriers and creating more access and inclusion in our services and supports,” Reyburn said.
The ECMC Foundation is funding the program, which the National College Transition Network, which is partnering with other organizations.
