Description

This presentation suggests a barrier removal perspective for student parent advocacy which recognizes that colleges are designed to accommodate students whose family cultures reflect the expectations, values, and norms of dominant groups and to exclude students whose family cultures do not. Participants will be invited to explore ways that their campuses can move towards providing full access to ALL students.

Michelle Marie PhD- Michelle is a veteran student parent and student parent advocate who is celebrating her daughter's 18th year by learning to play roller derby. When she's not on skates, she can often be found asking facilitative, design-process-based, problem-solving questions of whoever happens to be around. Michelle hopes that one day colleges and universities will gather into leagues in order to compete over who can provide the most comprehensive family-friendly policies, best on-campus childcare, and most elaborate play structures.
