Project Description

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) will collaborate with nine Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) across the state to support campus-based student parent centers through the Minnesota Student Parent Support Initiative (MSPSI). MSPSI will provide academic, health, financial, and social services and supports to expectant and parenting male and female students (ages 19-24). MSPI will serve students at community and technical colleges, tribal colleges, state universities and colleges, and private colleges.

The goals of MSPSI are to:

  1. Assist expectant and parenting students with post-secondary degree completion;
  2. Help participants and their families maintain positive health and well-being; and
  3. Help participating IHEs enhance their systems and policies so that they may better serve expectant and parenting students.
