The deVeber Institute's nationwide study of resources available to pregnant and parenting students on university campuses in Canada.
Most women feel that if they become pregnant while attending a post-secondary school, they cannot both complete their education and proceed with the pregnancy.
One way to analyze this option is to discover what kind of resources are available to this specific group of students. When pregnant and parenting students cannot find campus resources the message is clear: your time here is over.
The deVeber Institute of Bioethics and Social Research compiled a survey that consisted of six categories: education, housing, child care, health care, child-friendly campus and financial aid. This survey was completed for each of the 86 registered Canadian universities and each university was asked the same questions.
