Organizational culture and university responses to parenting students: A case study

© NASPA 2017. This case study examines implications of a university’s culture on advocating for supportive policies and programs for parenting students.

Findings are used to suggest future avenues for investigation and advocacy strategies that incorporate organizational culture.
