Briefly: Unplanned Pregnancy Among College Students and Strategies to Address It

As colleges strive to improve student success and completion, helping students delay pregnancy and parenting (or having additional children) means one less factor that can interfere with their college education. However, pregnancy planning and prevention is not something most colleges have addressed, especially at the community college level. To address this gap, Power to Decide has worked with community college leaders to develop and evaluate resources that are now available for any college to use.
