Community colleges, which can lead students to job opportunities and well-paying careers, are one of the main entry points to higher education for student parents. We use a conceptual framework that bridges career capital and community cultural wealth to understand student parents’ college and career trajectories.
This study asks:
- How do student parents of color navigate community college?
- How do student parents of color make educational and career decisions?
- What, if any, institutional resources do student parents of color utilize to learn about career planning and workforce transition resources at their campus?
