ADVANCE Midwest Partnership presents 'On Campus Child Care and Family Support' Discussion

Posted by Meghan Behymer for College of Arts and Sciences

Join us on Thursday January 26 (1 p.m. EST / 12 p.m. CST) for a virtual discussion on the equity issues faced by campus communities due to inadequate child care and caregiver support. This event is part of the ADVANCE Midwest Partnership - Joining Forces, a partnership of four research-intensive institutions funded by NSF ADVANCE. 

Drs. Wendy Robeson and Autumn Green will discuss the factors that make up family-friendly campuses as well as the problems faced by student caregivers/parents. This session will focus on equity with respect to child care and the problems families and children face when they have inadequate or no child care. The trilemma of care — affordability, availability and high quality — will be examined with respect to the needs of a campus community. This discussion will be inclusive of all members of the community: undergraduate and graduate students, staff and faculty.
