The Lactation Committee was founded Fall 2016 originally under the Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Women (CCSW). During reorganization, the Lactation Committee was moved to the Office for Equity and Diversity. During this time, our committee has been dedicated to improving our designated lactation spaces on campus and improving accommodations for lactation needs across campus.
The Lactation Committee is co-chaired by Kelli Russell, MPH, RHEd (HHP) and Ginger Grimes, (Biology). For more information about the Lactation Committee or to join the Committee please contact us. The Committee generally meets once a semester.
