Research & News

Student-Parent Research - Coming Soon

Research and information about Sacramento State student-parents, and CSU-wide initiatives such as the annual CSU Student-Parent Summit.

Student-Parent Ambassadors

Student-Parents Ambassadors are volunteers who have agreed to share their stories as Sac State students-with-children to help build the community into a more visible, friendly part of campus and to help advocate for resources. Student-parents get together socially at events, talk with other student-parents over email, phone, and Zoom calls, and serve as the voice of students-with-children to campus leaders.

Share your success as a Student-Parent!
