About the event

Our April webinar will be held Wednesday, April 6, 2022, noon – 1pm Pacific time (3-4pm Eastern time). The presenters will be Dr. Amy Dworsky (Chapin Hall at University of Chicago), Elissa Gitlow (Chapin Hall at University of Chicago), and Dr. Judy Havlicek (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign). This presentation is entitled “From Foster Care to Community College:  Experiences of Students in Illinois”. Presentation description: “We undertook a mixed-methods study to learn more about the experiences of Illinois community college students who are or were in foster care. Our findings suggest that despite significant federal and state investments in programs that aim to promote postsecondary educational attainment among this population, students who are or were in foster care are not receiving the supports they need to succeed in school from either child welfare or education systems.”
