Villanova University makes every effort to provide any student who should become pregnant with a supportive environment that assures caring, non-judgmental, professional assistance and support.

While attending Villanova, a student may be faced with an unplanned pregnancy, desire assistance for a student who is, or just needs someone to talk with about issues and options. Villanova University is committed to life and to making the choice of life viable for our students.

A student who becomes pregnant may elect to stay at Villanova during pregnancy if she wishes. The University community will offer her our full support. Villanova will do its best to accommodate a student's needs and concerns regarding classes, housing, and personal counseling during and after the pregnancy.

Villanova University is also a participant in The Nurturing Network, TNN, an international charitable organization that responds to the immediate and comprehensive needs of a woman facing the crisis of an unplanned pregnancy. The Network can be especially helpful should a Villanova student desire to live in another geographic area during her pregnancy or to transfer to another college or university of comparable excellence during pregnancy.

In order to support the choice of life and to provide information and assistance to pregnant students, Villanova has designated an advocate to help students who are (or think they may be) pregnant: Stacy Andes, Director of Health Promotion. In addition, the Student Health Center, the University Counseling Center, academic Deans' offices, and Campus Ministry are also available to offer assistance to students in need.
