More about Student Parent HELP Center

The University of Minnesota Student Parent Help Center (SPHC) was founded in 1967 as the HELP Center, initially serving all under-represented undergraduate students. In 1984, it transitioned to exclusively assist undergraduates with children, becoming the longest-standing student parent program in the nation. The SPHC supports a diverse range of student parents, including single mothers, fathers, adoptive parents, and other relatives. Engaging in national advocacy, it contributes to policy work groups and co-founded organizations like NASPA's Adult Learners and Students with Children Knowledge Community and HEAASC. The SPHC also advocates for family-friendly practices on the University of Minnesota campus. Since 2016, it has extended services to Graduate and Professional students with children, tailoring programs to meet the specific needs of both undergraduate and graduate student parents. For more information, visit the SPHC's homepage.
