Reminder: Open forum on child care is today

Those interested in the topic of childcare on the UW-Green Bay campus are invited to an open forum from 1:30 to 3 p.m. today (Monday, Feb. 4) in the 1965 Room of the University Union. The session will be moderated by Lynn Edlefson, who for 16 years has served as director of the Office of Child Care and Family Resources at UW-Madison. Edlefson is among the administrators that UW-Green Bay officials have consulted in the process of evaluating resumption of University-affiliated childcare. The former UW-Green Bay Children’s Center closed its doors nearly two decades ago. In recent years, Student Government Association leaders and others have asked the University to revisit the concept of an on-campus service. Edlefson will open the forum with a brief slide presentation recapping and analyzing a fall 2011 survey of potential user demand at UW-Green Bay, and share her general perspective on campus-based centers.  The session is open to all.
