Resources for Students & Scholars with Children

The following resources are made available for international students and scholars who will be raising children while enrolled in a degree program or while working at Brandeis.  We understand the challenges associated with both being a new parent as well as raising children in a different cultural setting from the one in which you were raised.  If you know of other resources available to parents which you would like to share, please email isso@brandeis.edu and we will post them on this page.
