Recently our Child Care Committee drafted a report outlining the current situation for University graduate student parents and their families and compared them to other institutions around the country. The report concludes that current University policy “fails to adequately meet the needs of graduate student parents, let alone clearly define the University rules and regulations related to maternity and paternity leave, childcare, and family life.”
As many of you know already, GSU has been pushing the administration to make the new child care center available to children of all families in the University community on a sliding scale payment basis. The report was handed to University administrators earlier this month by a contingent of graduate student parents and their children.
