Lactation Support Program:

All nursing mothers enrolled in our lactation support program may make use of a quiet, private, and well-equipped space in Williams Hall for their lactation needs while on campus. The lactation room is well-equipped with comfortable chairs, refrigerator, microwave, tabletop electrical outlets, and much, much more. If the lactation room is not convenient, the Title IX Office will assist to locate an appropriate space. 


Beginning on July 23, 2020, all nursing mothers are required to register with the Title IX Office before accessing the space, to ensure our incredible Facilities team members may maintain all CDC and NCDHHS sanitation guidance protocols.
