The Committee on Gender Equity (CGE) enthusiastically supports the Office of Human Resources establishing a Mothers' Room to support working families, in particular, nursing mothers at The University of Scranton. This room is a quiet, peaceful space furnished with a comfortable chair, table and a refrigerator to allow breastfeeding mothers the privacy and comfort needed.
Currently there is one location for a Mothers' Room in St. Thomas Hall. The University is currently trying to locate space for another Mother’s room on the lower end of campus to replace the one that was previously located in Leahy Hall.
Mothers needing additional information regarding access to the room should call the Office of Human Resources at (570) 941-7767.
