Update Day Care Committee – Katie Underwood:
Katie Underwood met with Katrina Whitney regarding the Childcare committee. The proposed structure included three student parents, one student S&A member, one faculty S&A member, Pat Gross or Jen Krafchick representing Family and Consumer Science as well as the Community and Family Learning Center, Janie Charlton representing ECLC and the Rainbow Room, Katie Underwood, and Katrina Whitney. The S&A Committee also suggested someone representing Administration possibly Charlotte Tullos or her suggestion for a participant, Libby Street from the President’s office, and an involved community member. Katie suggested the committee would outline a budget of the current expenses and revenues, including in-kind donations, administration input, S&A input, and any other funding. They would also create a comparison of other colleges in the state. The committee is also willing to take on other charges as recommended by the S&A Committee. The S&A Committee suggested the committee involve the Administration, look at different models from peer institutions, and support the efforts of the State Legislature regarding their top priority-childcare. The S&A Committee is not just scrutinizing the Childcare Program, but all programs will be thoroughly studied if we adopt the 4-year review cycle.
