The Pregnancy and Parenting Resources Initiative (PPRI) at Clarion University is a development that originated initially in dialogues among Students for Life, the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance, and Women United, on the topic of abortion. In the attempt to find common ground, all agreed that servicing the unmet needs of pregnant and parenting students was essential. PPRI promotes services for pregnant and parenting students.

PPRI is not intended to be a representative of pro-life or pro-choice. It is only intended to provide students with resources if they are pregnant.



  • to support pregnant and parenting students at Clarion as they strive to attain a college education;

  • to advocate for these students in the areas of advising, housing, childcare, healthcare, resource identification, and financial aid;

  • and to organize parenting workshops and social and professional networking opportunities.
