The Montana State University Family Care Room, a room where parents may tend to their infants, or mothers can nurse or pump milk for a baby, will have its grand opening at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26, at the room's permanent location, 123 Hamilton Hall.

A project of the MSU Women's Faculty Caucus, the room is meant to strengthen MSU's work-family balance as the institution moves to becoming a family-friendly university, according to caucus organizers.

"We believe that supporting faculty, staff and students with new children is one such important institutional value," said Jessi L. Smith, a psychology professor at MSU and a member of the WFC. "This has been two years in the works."

She said anyone affiliated with, or visiting, MSU can use the room to pump breast milk, nurse or attend to a child. The room will be open during the school day
