UO Sociology alum reports on student parent housing efforts
A new piece on the independent news site The Conversation by UO Sociology alumna Dr. Autumn Greene, discusses the scarcity of student housing for students with children while highlighting the efforts UO and other US universities have made to create community for this population.
Dr. Greene is working on a number of projects relating to access and equity in higher education. As a research scientist at Wellesley College, Dr. Greene has shown how policies make significant differences for students who also juggle parenting.
Dr. Greene is now co-leading the Oregon Student Parent Success Coalition, which is a group of statewide and national experts who are working to help move an initiative and legislative bill forward that would initiate data collection on parenting status for all Oregon public university students.
