The ad hoc Child Care Committee has continued to meet and collect information this summer. The committee, charged by President Dean L. Bresciani to produce a report by the end of the year, interviewed NDSU Child Care Center staff, faculty and administrators involved in center administration, community child care providers and national representatives who provide child care. The committee received a financial analysis from Child Care Resource and Referral and is waiting for additional analysis from College of Business graduate students supervised by Karen Froelich, associate professor of management and marketing.
Ultimately, the committee plans to produce a report describing several options for the future of the child care center, including descriptions of costs and benefits for each alternative. The options will be presented to President Bresciani and the campus community for review and a decision about the center.
Committee members include Canan Bilen-Green, Joshua Boschee, Karen Froelich, Kendra Greenlee, Kevin McCaul and Wendy Reed.
