Committee Description: The University Child Care Committee (UCCC) was formed in 1970 to address the needs of child care on campus.  As the years went by this main mission stayed intact, but to a large extent remained unmet and pressing.  In 1988, the UCCC not only addressed the need for child care on campus but quality of care, fair wages for the campus child care provides, affordability to University parents using campus child care centers, and parental involvement.  The mission of the UCCC is still to address the ever pressing needs of having child care on campus as well as generally charged to provide recommendations to the Provost and Campus Child Care Coordinator regarding:

– the vision and mission for campus child care
– implementation of a comprehensive campus child care system, in light of the committee’s vision and mission for campus child care
– evaluation of the operations of the campus child care system, in light of priorities and principles for campus child care set by the committee
– needed improvement in the child care system, including proposals for expanding services
– accountability of all existing and proposed child care facilities, programs and services for meeting the requirements of UW System GAPP #88, particularly related to accreditation, affiliation, and mission of campus children’s centers.
– priorities for allocating spaces and facilities for child care
