The Association of Women Faculty includes all women faculty at

NC State University. We come together to support, engage and encourage

one another. We aim to help promote and sustain women in our profession

at NC State, and to monitor and encourage equity for all women across

professional ranks and tracks at our university.



Please come join us for some networking at no-host networking hours organized by AWF, the Council on the Status of Women and the NCSU Women's Center. Come have a cup of coffee, an appetizer, or a drink and meet other NCSU faculty.

The Faculty Senate adopted a resolution for the provision of lactation space in NCSU facilities on April 21, 2009. The text of the resolution is online and can be accessed by clicking here.

Existing lactation spaces and baby care rooms

The University Space Committee endorsed the following goals on June 16, 2010:

  • Provide a minimum of one specified lactation room in each campus neighborhood:
    • Most locations will have dual-use rooms that can be scheduled
    • Major public use buildings (eg. libraries, student centers) will have dedicated, conveniently located baby care rooms for use by either parent
  • Incorporate lactation room requirements into the NCSU Design and Construction Guidelines
  • All new buildings shall have one baby care room, as appropriate
  • Interim solutions: identify conference rooms of offices in each neighborhood, concentrating first on locations with a higher proportion of women
  • Long term solutions: obtain University Space Committee approval for dedicating space in existing buildings as necessary

A very informative AIA paper outlining best practices for lactation room can be found here.
