Campus closures and a transition to distance learning during the 2020-21 school year required colleges and universities to engage with families. Families supported students with moving, new living arrangements, and in their daily work. This sometimes included food, internet access, shared spaces and cars, and shifting financial responsibilities. We surveyed parents throughout this time and are collecting a third wave of data during fall 2021. In this webinar we will share what we have learned from families about how the pandemic has impacted higher education, students’ academic opportunities and family well-being. Facilitators Jodi Dworkin, Ph.D. is a Professor and Extension Specialist at the University of Minnesota in the Department of Family Social Science.  Her research and outreach focuses on parenting adolescents and college students, and the role of technology in these relationships. Marjorie Savage has developed nationally acclaimed parent/family programming centered on communication and technology. She is a frequent speaker and consultant on the topic of family-college relations, both nationally and internationally. Kathy Vasquez and Samantha LeBouef are doctoral students in the Department of Family Social Science, and Liz Hruska is an Assistant Director in Career and Internship Services at the University of Minnesota.
