Publication ,  Journal Article

This case study examines implications of a university’s culture on advocating for supportive policies and programs for parenting students. Four themes illuminated several key tensions within the institution that affected support for parenting students: the lack of formal policy, an emphasis on faculty practices around accommodations, concerns about differential treatment, and the problematization of parenting students. Findings are used to suggest future avenues for investigation and advocacy strategies that incorporate organizational culture.
