Students who are parents program

Parenting is a tough job! Many of our students parent, work, and juggle many other competing priorities. SWAP aims to create a cohesive and supportive social media community of scholars that understand the unique experience of their parenting peers.

We know that juggling parenting and school can be a challenge but, you can stay connected virtually. Join the many other UMSL students who are parents on Facebook as you make your way towards accomplishing your goals.

You can also stay connected with peer and stay up on the latest events by visiting our Triton Sync!

Remember we are here to support you.


SWAP is spearheaded by Shereka Kemp - a parent, student and UMSL professional. In an effort to continue building this initiative we welcome any feedback or suggestions. Please contact Ashley with any questions at
