Student Parent Handbook
The Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity is proud to present a handbook for pregnant and parenting students. This handbook includes on-campus resources, lactation room locations (with a campus map), scholarship information, Title IX protections, rights and words of advice and encouragement.
We created this handbook to provide a comprehensive resource for students who are also parents. Student parents have many unique responsibilities that they must balance, and it is important to provide a resource that will help student parents navigate both roles.
We hope this resource answers many, if not all, of the questions student parents have as they learn to navigate as a student and as a parent at the University of Kansas.

In addition, we wanted to share the University of Kansas' new policy for graduate students who are new parents. This policy states that graduate students welcoming a child into their home will be allowed a six-week academic accommodation. This allows students to take a break from their academic responsibilities in order to aid in their transition to having a new member of their family. Find out more here.
