OSU Corvallis campus community members,
As a part of Oregon State’s commitment to supporting students and employees in pursuing happy, balanced and fulfilling lives, the office of Childcare and Family Resources on the Corvallis campus will host the 6th annual “Bring Your Kids to Campus” Day on Friday, April 14.
This Corvallis campus event is a way to celebrate family, the importance of education, and to highlight the campus as a family friendly community where parents can share their work and studies, and where families may learn, play and succeed together.
We realize that OSU employees live and work across the state. While this date and the Corvallis campus may not be ideal or accessible for everyone, we feel it important to hold a special event of this nature each year and promote engagement by as many participants as possible. Meanwhile, we encourage all offices of OSU throughout the state to consider their own opportunities for “bringing your kids to work.” For more ideas about such programs, e-mail FamilyResources@oregonstate.edu.
This Friday, we are asking for campus-wide collaboration to make this day a huge success. We encourage departments to have discussions ahead of time with employees and students, so that campus classrooms, workspaces, common areas, and other campus locations can be inclusive and family-friendly that day.
If your department is interested in hosting a family-friendly activity next year, please contact Childcare and Family Resources at FamilyResources@oregonstate.edu or by calling 541-737-4906. Any questions regarding this year’s event can be directed there, as well.
We look forward to celebrating with you and your families this Friday. See you then!
