Human Rights Services, in partnership with Facilities Management and Development, and Workplace Wellbeing Services, is developing a list of spaces on campus where folks can go to breastfeed (or chestfeed) their child. These spaces should be quiet, comfortable and accessible, and should also have space for pumping breastmilk. While it is each person's right to breastfeed anywhere they chose, we want to ensure that we are providing safe and private spaces to do so.
Ideally, there would be one designated space per building on campus. However, this does not necessarily have to be a dedicated room, but rather could also be a commitment to offer a space or an office when needed.
Would your department and/or area be able to provide a space? We are happy to consult with you at any time should you have any questions. The goal is to create a guide of all the spaces available on campus for folks to access.
If you are interested in providing a space in your unit, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:

We appreciate your support in this important initiative to ensure we are creating an equitable and inclusive campus for all.
