Join a Subcommittee

Childcare Subcommittee

Jodie Drake | Chair

The Women’s Caucus Childcare subcommittee is working to better understand the issue of childcare for the faculty, staff & students of the University. The goal of the subcommittee is to identify the scope of childcare needs for the UD community and further research opportunities for support.

Leave Policies Subcommittee

Joell Bacchieri & Kelsey Cummings | Co-Chairs

The Women’s Caucus Subcommittee for Leave Policies is concerned with University policies and procedures in place for the various types of leave on campus and what changes might be needed for University of Delaware faculty and staff to be supported on campus. These might include maternity leave, sick leave, dependent sick leave, and extended sick leave.

Communications Subcommittee

Katie Meier | Chair

The communications subcommittee’s primary responsibility is to put together the Women’s Caucus Annual Report. This work happens over the summer months, with a targeted publication date early in the fall semester. Volunteers are always needed to write text; gather info (especially for the news and kudos sections, plus any special features); analyze data; edit the writing; find appropriate photos and other illustrations; create a beautiful layout.

In addition, this subcommittee maintains the Women’s Caucus website and helps with the Caucus’s marketing needs during the academic year, such as writing stories for UDaily on our activities and meetings or to highlight actions by the administration (e.g., the flex-time policy); designing mailers, typically postcards.
