Lactation Network at Clemson University

Clemson University Lactation Network

Clemson University promotes a family-friendly work and study environment for mothers and their infants. As a part of Clemson’s goal to provide employees, student workers and students with work/life balance, the University strives to offer clean, private space for new mothers to nurse and/or express breastmilk and flexible opportunities to do so during the work/school day.

The Clemson Lactation Network is a combination of:

  • Dedicated wellness/lactation rooms
  • Public spaces where one might be able to express milk
  • Reservable space for you to express milk (e.g., conference room)
  • Space volunteered by individuals
