Report of the Provost’s Child Care Advisory Committee

Published Date






This advisory committee was convened by Executive Vice President and Provost Karen Hanson in March 2018 to examine the child care needs of faculty, staff, and students on the Twin Cities campus and to consider how the University might best expand access to high-quality, cost-effective child care ( See Charge to Committee, Appendix A). The committee conducted research on child care; collected data from the University and from our peer institutions; conducted a survey of employees and students; and listened to the stories of parents regarding their experiences with child care. It is clear from this examination that working and student parents at the University of Minnesota need better child care solutions, and that University support for high-quality child care for the campus community benefits and supports the mission of the broader University.
