Pregnant & Parenting Campus Community Members
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.
To learn more about the University's lactation support program, receive an Ad Hoc lactation support kit, and other University resources available to assist nursing mothers within our campus community and visitors, please contact Ms. Jessica Tuttle in the Title IX Office.

Specific accommodations will vary from student to student. Examples of accommodations may include:
- a larger desk
- breaks during class
- rescheduling tests or exams
- excusing absences due to pregnancy or related conditions
- submitting work after a deadline missed due to pregnancy or childbirth
- providing alternatives to make up missed work
