Equipando Padres: Support Your Student’s Success

https://youtu.be/SU38nH25DGw

At SHPE, we know padres, madres, and caregivers play a pivotal role in the success of their children, while attending college. The Equipando Padres program is designed to fill the parent programming gap by incorporating aspects critical to Hispanic culture and addressing specific challenges of pursuing an engineering career. As a result, familias are positioned to be integral contributors to their student’s success.

Glossary

As you go through Equipando Padres University, you may hear unfamiliar terms. You may also hear your student using new terms/words, but when you ask them to explain further they may have trouble providing an accurate definition. Below is an alphabetical list to help you out.

Caregiver

A Caregiver is an individual, including a relative (grandma, sister, uncle, etc.), neighbor, or family friend, who regularly or frequently provides care for a child for whom the individual is not the parent.

First Generation College Student

First-generation refers to students who are the first in their families to attend college or whose parents didn’t complete a college degree. Many schools have special offices or programs to provide guidance to first-generation students.

Parent

Each family is different, our community is diverse and our families represent that. A parent could be the students’ mother(s) or father(s). This program is not limited to parents (biological or adoptive), but it is open to family members, caregivers, or guardians that are committed to actively engage in empowering their students to be successful in engineering education.
