Grad Student Parent Network

Grad Student Parent Network is a group for moms (and dads, if there are any of you out there!) who are currently working on a post-baccalaureate (post-undergraduate) degree. Grad student moms have unique needs such as juggling the baby and writing a dissertation, commuting to classes while TAing an undergraduate course, struggling with the tenure-track job interviews and balancing daycare, attending evening classes while working full time, to name a few. Anyone who is trying to earn a MA/MS, PhD, EdD, JD, MBA, etc. or who can empathize and offer support for grad student mom experiences is welcome to join this group.
