Two forums scheduled on planned expanded child care program

Two open forums are scheduled for early August to gather campus community input regarding a planned expanded child care program to serve students, staff, and faculty.

The forums are set for Wednesday, Aug. 2 from noon to 1 p.m. in the M110 Media Theater, and Thursday, Aug. 3 from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Family Student Housing Community Room.

A new center and child care program are part of the plan for additional student housing. The center and the program were announced May 31 in a campus message from Chancellor Blumenthal and then interim Campus Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor Herbert Lee.

All interested campus community members are invited to attend. The forums will provide attendees the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas with members of the work group organized to develop the program for the expanded center.

In addition, a web page has been published that provides information about the planned new center and program. It includes an online form for interested campus community to submit thoughts and ideas.
