Booth Dean of Students on MaB

March 10, 2009

We wanted to share a lovely note of support that we received from Ann Harvilla, Associate Dean and Dean of Students. Ann was incredibly supportive of this inititiave and also helped get the lactation room up and running in fall of 2007. We are very appreciative for the support we receive from Booth and excited about continuing to build the resources and community for moms and moms-to-be.

From Ann:

Students who also are parents face a particularly unique challenge-balancing coursework, career development, and family obligations. Those challenges, especially for mothers who are students-don’t necessarily come in that order, especially when small children are in the picture. MaB offers mothers at Booth a platform for forming a community and sharing common experiences. With the help of the Office of Diversity Affairs, Chicago Booth believes it is important to support Mothers at Booth and continue the conversation about how we make this community a welcoming and warm environment for women with children.
