    Join us for a discussion on the equity issues faced by campus communities due to inadequate child care and caregiver support. Drs. Wendy Wagner Robeson and Autumn Green will discuss the factors that make up family-friendly campuses as well 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.

    Dr. Wendy Wagner Robeson (Wellesley Center for Women) and Dr. Autumn Green (Urban Institute and U of M Fellow) will lead the presentation. 

    This second session follows the one offered on January 26 and will focus on developing strategies and solutions to address these issues. It is our hope that by raising awareness of these concerns we all can recognize that our campuses need to uphold care infrastructures that are flexible and value community members’ values, cultures, gender, ethnicity and diversity so that all members can advance and reach their potential and thereby, enhance the campus to which they belong.
