Coral Gables (March 19, 2012) — In its continuing effort to foster a family-friendly environment, the University of Miami is pleased to announce the opening of dedicated rooms on all UM campuses to support nursing mothers upon their return to work. Details of the program, which is open to faculty, staff, and students, can be viewed in the Break Time for Nursing Mothers policy.

Nursing-mother rooms are now open at the following locations:

Coral Gables campus

  • McKnight Building, 5807 Ponce de Leon Boulevard, Room 204

Faculty, staff, and students who need a private place to express milk may reserve space on a first-come, first-served basis and should complete a Nursing Mother Accommodation Request Form. Once completed, Equality Administration will coordinate with the nursing mother to identify the space closest to her work site. A master calendar is available to schedule employees who have desired times to use a nursing room. Nursing mothers are, however, encouraged to use their personal office space or space identified by their departments when possible.

For questions regarding scheduling or related policy, please contact Equality Administration at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

A positive nursing mother experience improves work-life balance and is beneficial to the University. We welcome your suggestions as we identify the best approaches to continuously improve this program. Please send emails to the Nursing Mother Advisory Group at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
