Survey Regarding Anticipated Childcare Needs

To: Faculty and Staff

Dear Colleagues:

The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the critical importance of childcare and schools in our communities as a support system for working parents. We are also aware that the burden of providing such care and educational support may fall disproportionately on female faculty and staff.

As some faculty and staff begin to return to campus while others continue to work remotely, our early care and education centers are gradually reopening following new state health guidelines. Our on-campus schools, UCLA Lab School and Geffen Academy at UCLA, are working through plans for fall instruction. We can anticipate that surrounding independent schools and public school districts will likely include a mix of in-person and remote instruction. Given this new reality, we recognize that many of our faculty and staff will have unmet needs for childcare.

In order to better understand the childcare needs of faculty and staff this fall, we ask you to complete a brief survey. It will take no more than 10 minutes to complete, and the results will allow us to explore options for providing additional childcare.

Thank you in advance for your time in completing this brief survey.

Sincerely,

Michael J. Beck

Administrative Vice Chancellor
