» Coffee Matters: Accommodating Pregnant and Parenting Students


<p><strong>Coffee Matters: Accommodating Pregnant and Parenting Student</strong></p> <p>Protections from discrimination for pregnant and parenting students are among the lesser known aspects of Title IX.&nbsp; With the increase of &ldquo;non-traditional&rdquo; students on campus and the shifting views on the balance between education, career, and family, this aspect of Title IX is &ldquo;the new frontier&rdquo;.&nbsp; The effects of pregnancy discrimination in the academic pipeline are only now being subject to increased scrutiny.&nbsp; Therefore, being well-versed in providing reasonable accommodations to pregnant and parenting students is critical to ensuring equal educational access to all students, which is the basis of complying fully with Title IX.&nbsp;</p> <p>This <strong>free program</strong>, sponsored by the <strong>Office of Institutional Equity</strong>, is open to students, faculty and staff.</p> <p><strong>A free&nbsp;hot breakfast&nbsp;</strong>will be provided to those in attendance. &nbsp;</p> <p>For more information, please contact Kelly Prunty at <a href="mailto:kqprunty@salisbury.edu">kqprunty@salisbury.edu</a>&nbsp;or 410-677-5311.</p> <p>&nbsp;.&nbsp;</p>
