Campus Child Care: A Challenge for the 80's. Field Evaluation Draft.
The issue of the increased demand for child care on campus is considered, and possible institutional solutions are recommended. Since parents needing child care appear to be male students as well as re-entry women, the suggestions may be helpful in increasing educational opportunities and participation of both sexes. Topics include: advantages of providing campus child care; child care and course load; child care and equal opportunity for re-entry women and for minority women; child care and financial aid; Title IX and other federal laws; state laws that hinder students needing child care; paying for child care on campus; federal and state resources; and kinds of formal and informal arrangements that have been used for child care. Those who need campus child care include male and female undergraduates; graduate, minority, and re-entry students; single parents; faculty members; and campus employees. It is suggested that it is usually the woman student who most needs child care services on campus. A selected list of resources and organizations is included, as is a field test questionnaire evaluating this report. (SW)
