The Women’s Center supports working parents and caregivers through advocacy, education, and resource sharing. When faculty, staff, and students are able to continue to meet their family obligations, they are better able to foster a sense of well-being and reach their fullest potential. To our UMBC caregivers juggling remote work and learning with caretaking responsibilities, we see you, we believe you, and you matter.
Working in partnership with the Provost Office, we are committed to providing you greater access to resources and support specific to UMBC and the broader Maryland community, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these resources are also available to our students. Please review the resources via this new website and let us know if you have any questions or would like to schedule an individualized support meeting with someone on our staff.
We know this website won't fix the complexities and stress that come from having our whole lives happening in one place at the same time which requires juggling of work, learning, teaching, caregiving (and more!) ... but we hope it may alleviate an extra google search here or there or get you connected with a support system you may not have yet.
Again, we'll say it: To our UMBC working parents and caretakers: We see you. We believe you. You matter.
