Pregnancy and Parenting
Location of Lactation Suite
To assist parenting students, faculty, staff, and guests the university offers a lactation suite in the Bart Luedeke Center, room 132.
As a pregnant or parenting student you are protected under Title IX and therefore protected under the university’s Anti-Harassment and Non-Discrimination Policy. Title IX prohibits educational institutions from discriminating against an individual based on childbirth, false pregnancy, or recovery from related conditions.
If pregnant, you have the option to meet with our Title IX Compliance Officer to discuss how the school supports pregnant and parenting students in continuing their education or supporting employees in their career. The Title IX Compliance Officer will work with the faculty member (and department) to provide modifications to meet all reasonable request while fundamentally ensuring these modifications do not fundamentally alter the course or it’s objectives. These modifications may include:
- Excusing absences or lateness due to pregnancy, or related conditions
- Rescheduling tests and exams
- Providing alternatives to make up missed work
- Providing work desks
- Providing assistance with parking
