Child Care Survey Planned

Faculty, staff, and graduate students are encouraged to fill out an e-mail questionnaire they will soon receive regarding their child care needs.

The survey was initiated by the Provost's Child Care Implementation Committee, which is charged with meeting the needs for adequate, affordable, and reliable childcare for the UConn community.

"Access to high quality child care is of great importance to many of our faculty, staff, and students," says Fred Maryanski, interim provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. "This survey will provide us information on the need for child care, and will permit the University to develop an appropriate response to that need."

The questionnaire was prepared by the University's Center for Survey Research and Analysis, a nonpartisan, nonprofit survey research facility dedicated to the study of public opinion.

The committee has already completed a survey about the availability of child care in Mansfield, says committee co-chair Veronica Makowsky, interim vice provost for academic affairs. "We now need to know if the supply meets the demand, so it's important for people to fill out the survey."
