Resources and Support

Students who are Parents

The University of Chicago has many great resources for graduate students who are parents or are expecting to be parents. The BSD recognizes that balancing school work and family is an important piece of your life and we want to share these resources with you while you are a member of this community.

Each pregnancy requires different resources and each family has a different situation so please contact your program administrator, your PI, or the OGPA in order to fill out the appropriate forms and approvals. They will also be able to help you with any questions. An open and honest discourse with this group of people is highly recommended and encouraged to receive the support necessary to navigate this part of your lives. 

Many of these resources are intended for anyone affiliated with UChicago, while others are specifically intended for students. Be sure to read carefully for anything that applies to students. While this is not a comprehensive list, it is a good place to begin.
