Lactation Station Resource in JRP
Are you a nursing mother on campus in need of a private place to pump or nurse your baby? The KU School of Education offers women a private, quiet, distraction-free environment for those who prefer to nurse their babies in that type of setting. Please note that they will do their best to work with your needs but availability cannot be guaranteed. It is important to stress that this is a choice, not a requirement. Kansas law (K.S.A. 43-158) gives women the legal right to nurse her baby in public.
KU cares about helping nursing mothers feel welcome on campus and have the resources they need to balance work, school and family. Please visit the KU School of Education Welcome Center in Joseph R. Pearson (JRP) Hall, Room 208, or contact Connie Gentry at 785-864-3726 or firstname.lastname@example.org to use the lactation station available in JRP Hall. The lactation station services at KU are coordinated by KU's Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity.
