New University Lactation Policy

The University recently adopted a Lactation Policy made effective on 12/20/2016. This new policy reinforces the University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for employees and students who are breastfeeding. The policy enables employees and students to express milk in a private place, have reasonable break time and a location within five minutes of their work and study areas.

The full policy is available at http://policy.uconn.edu/?p=7009. Procedures, which include specific guidance for students, employees, graduate assistants and supervisors, are available at the end of the policy.
