SAVE THE IUSB CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER!
Due to budget issues and decreased student enrollment at the university, Indiana University South Bend is currently trying to obtain a new vendor to outsource the Child Development Center. This means current teachers, who the center’s current children have come to know and love, could potentially lose their jobs, and the policies and structure of the center, as a whole, could change.
As parents and students, we are relying on this center to provide a safe and loving environment for our two small children while we attend classes and advance our education. It is a strong reason that we chose to attend IUSB in the first place. We feel outsourcing would be a huge mistake, and sends the message that the one organization on campus that many nontraditional students, such as us, truly rely on, the university doesn’t feel is worth supporting!
By signing this petition you are agreeing that the Indiana University Child Development Center is something worth continuing to have on campus, and the school should be willing to support it!
Thank You for Your Support!
(A paper version of this petition has also been circulating campus and has over 200 signatures thus far.)
