This webinar will highlight curriculum resources developed by and for college faculty to help students delay pregnancy or having another child until after they have completed their educational goals. Sixty-one percent of women who have children while attending community college do not finish their course work.
Participants in AACC’s Make It Personal: College Completion project will share course templates they developed in varying disciplines and discuss how and why they integrated pregnancy planning and prevention topics into their course objectives. The templates are intended for adaptation and use by other community college faculty. They include standard features such as academic objectives, pregnancy planning/prevention objectives, preparation, materials, assessment, and service learning activities. Faculty teaching the courses found that students were more engaged in their learning and recognized the importance of pregnancy planning and prevention to complete their college goals.
