Working Parents Club

On-campus parent network

Inspired by Purdue University's APSAC and CCSAC committees, WorkLife Programs created an on-campus parent network for Purdue faculty, staff and graduate staff parents. The Purdue Working Parents Club (PWPC) influences speaker topics for WorkLife Programs, hosts social networking activities and parent only events, as well as kid playgroups, and conducts online conversations for working parents.

PWPC has its own network on Facebook available only to members of the Purdue community. Monitored by the PWPC Steering Committee, this site is where members can:
