Dear colleagues,

The WorkLife Office is a strong advocate of support for Spartans who are caregivers. We appreciate the struggles, we see the challenges, and we have resource and information to help. A recent New York Times article outlines the issue parents are facing. Now more than ever, we want to be sure you are aware of childcare. Please share this information with relevant staff and faculty members as these resources could benefit many people within the MSU community.

Services available:

Support for managing boundaries with kids and work at home:

Supervisor support on flexibility and making equitable decisions:

We hope you will reach out to us with questions, comments and suggestions or needs:
