Pregnancy and Parenting

LET'S BE CLEAR...

Parenting and Parting at UCF

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex
in education programs or activities including academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other
programs or activities of schools. UCF Policy 2.004-1 prohibits discrimination based on sex (including
pregnancy and parental status).

 

Accommodation Requests

UCF is committed to creating an accessible and inclusive environment for pregnant and parenting faculty, staff and students. Individuals may request reasonable accommodations as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary based on the individual circumstances, but may include: academic accommodations and flexibility (such as breaks during class, excused absences, rescheduling of tests, extensions of deadlines, and alternatives to make up missed work); leaves of absences or changes in work schedules; changes to housing; or other types of accommodations.

Students who wish to discuss or request accommodations based on pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions, should fill out a Pregnancy Accommodation Request Form and return to oie@ucf.edu.

Employees who wish to discuss or request accommodations based on pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions, should contact the Deputy Title IX Coordinator, at oie@ucf.edu to schedule an appointment.

 

Expectant Mothers Parking Program

Student permit holders in their third trimester of pregnancy may elect to reserve an expectant mother space in their permitted lot. For convenience, a spot may be selected by the expectant mother to provide a location with closer proximity to her primary destination, within the parameters of her previously assigned lot. Should the permit holder need to make these arrangements prior to the third trimester due to a high risk or otherwise problematic condition, please contact us as soon as possible. Students must be enrolled as a full-time (12 credit hours) student (online classes do not qualify). Please email patrice.fairweather@ucf.edu or deanofstudents@ucf.edu or Student Development and Enrollment Services, 407-823-6960 for more information.

Lactation Privacy Rooms

The University of Central Florida recognizes the needs of new mothers by developing lactation privacy rooms on campus. These secure locations provide UCF mothers, whether students, staff or faculty, the ability to ease back into work or school without having to sacrifice the healthy practice of expressing their milk. Current locations with designated lactation privacy rooms can be found here.
