COVID-19: News and Campus Updates | Fall 2021 Plans

Lactation Support


Thank you for stopping by! The Center for Women’s and Gender Equity (CWGE) continues to support our campus and encourages you to reach out to our Center for any support that you may need.

Lactation stations are now open and available for use throughout campus. Each lactation station will be cleaned daily by our campus facility maintenance staff and disinfecting wipes will be provided.

Resources for lactation support:


The University of Northern Colorado recognizes the importance and benefits of breastfeeding/chestfeeding and human milk for both the individual breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and/or lactating and their children, and in promoting a family-friendly work and study environment. As a UNC community member, you will be glad to know that we have many options to support folks who decide to continue to express their milk upon return to work and/or school. This initiative is sponsored by the Center for Women's & Gender Equity and the Department of Nutrition & Dietetics. 

We are proud to announce UNC received the Breastfeeding Friendly Business Award from Weld County Public Health and Environment! Awards are given to businesses that develop creative solutions to support breastfeeding/chestfeeding mothers and employees.

For any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us at cwge@unco.edu.
