Valle Verde's newly opened Student Parent Resource Center provides a study space for EPCC student-parents where they can bring their children while they do homework and study. The center is in Building A, room A2415. 

 

This center allows parents who are students to have a safe space for their children. The Valle Verde campus Parent Resource Center provides lactation rooms and child-friendly play areas, complete with toys, books, a crawl space, and kid-sized furniture. Desks and computers are available for adults or older children are studying.  


“We, as a task force, are very interested in helping student parents succeed. 50% of our students were student parents in Spring 2020. That's half your customers,” said Lucia Rodriguez, director of the Office of Student Success.

The Student-Parent Resource Center’s goal is to provide learning through a two generational approach for EPCC Students and their children.


Each of the five EPCC campuses has created a Parent Resource Center, that includes all necessities like a private room for lactation mothers and a space to change babies.  



“This resource provides support for parents, provides childcare, it provides children college opportunities where they can start learning, or even just coming to campus at a very young age” Dr. Myshie Pagel, Campus Dean of Education said. “It's a great way to support our community.”
