How Is COVID-19 Impacting College Students: Parents’ Perspectives
December 10, 2021
1pm ET/ 12pm CT/ 11am MT/ 10am PT

Results from three national surveys of college parents, conducted by the Department of Family Social Science, University of Minnesota, and AHEPPP: Family Engagement in Higher Education.

COVID-19 has undoubtedly changed the face of higher education. Campus closures and a transition to distance learning during the 2020-21 school year required colleges and universities to engage with families. Families were supporting students with moving, new living arrangements, and often supporting them in their daily work (that might have included food, internet access, shared spaces and cars, and shifting financial responsibilities). We have been surveying parents throughout this time and are collecting a third wave of data during fall 2021. In this webinar we will share what we have learned from families about how the pandemic has impacted higher education, students’ academic opportunities, and family well-being.
