Becoming a Parent while Pursuing a Graduate Degree Panel

When: November 7, 12–2 pm
Where: Grad Room, 66 Harbord St.


Many students debate if they should have a baby in graduate school or whether to wait until their lives and careers are more established. This talk will provide you with information to allow you to make a more informed decision about what it means to start a family, including:

Programs and resources available for students who are starting a family, such as, University and Government leave policies; funding options for pregnancy/ parental leave; and resources for new parents.

A panel discussion featuring a faculty member and graduate students who are raising children. You will be able to hear first-hand about their experiences, challenges and valuable strategies for integrating studies and careers with raising children. Pizza will be served.

Presented by the Family Care Office, the School of Graduate Studies, and Gradlife
