New Student Programs

Students Who Are Parents


SWAP logo

SWAP stands for Students Who Are Parents, a new initiative that looks to support students who have children.

UMSL is committed to supporting parenting student populations. As part of that effort, this initiative was created to connect parenting students with services available on the UMSL campus, the surrounding community as well as develop targeted programs to meet this populations’ needs. We also want to highlight the experiences of all parenting students—undergraduate, graduate, single, partnered, etc. We understand that all students have unique experiences and offer this group as a place to share and connect with other parenting students. UMSL has many inspiring parenting students and hearing their stories is important to the development of support programs and other initiatives designed to create a more cohesive and supportive community for students with children.

In an effort to better serve Students Who Are Parents on campus, we invite you to the following events to help you SUCCEED AS A STUDENT! 

Please join our organization in TritonSync and visit our website for events, resources, blogs, and additional information about SWAP.
