This identity/allyship rope team has been designed to offer connections, opportunities, resources, and experiences to support the development and success of students and alums participating in the parenting journey, as well as to facilitate the engagement of other community members who identify or care for this community and its members’ development and success. This rope team is designed to bring together and offer a safe space for students, alums, faculty, staff, and community members seeking to share and learn from each other, including those who need a village to scaffold their development and success, as well as those who are ready to help others and lead the way to find solutions to today’s parenting challenges.  We call them “rope teams” because these communities, as many as you are interested in accessing, are here to support your student and alum journey as well as to provide you with an opportunity to support the journey of those you want to help succeed.
