In support of our students and employees who are nursing mothers, three lactation rooms are available for use. The rooms offers a secure and private place for the mother to express milk for their nursing children.
To make arrangements to use one of the lactation rooms:
- Employees should contact Human Resources (HR) via phone at 734-973-3684, email, or in person in Business Education Building, room 120
- Students should contact the Student Resource Center (SRC) via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone at 734-677-5105.
The lactation rooms are available for both day and evening hours.
