The day-care debate remains unresolved at the University of Lethbridge despite a strong showing of student support at Thursday’s board of governors meeting and an agreement by administration that such a facility is needed.
Administrators spelled out for the board a number of conditions that have to be met before the university agrees to set aside space for a day-care centre.
Such commitments include a firm pledge from an external provider and assurance that students, staff and faculty and any other users of the facility will agree to pay construction costs.
“We need a serious financial commitment, a pledge, and then I’m sure the board will agree to take a serious look at this,” said Nancy Walker, vice-president finance and administration at U of L.
Props to the U of L Daycare Action Committee for all their hard work.
