Family-Friendly Resources

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University are developing an institutional culture – supported by the necessary policies and structures – that is intentionally inclusive and supportive to all on campus, including faculty, staff, and students who are pregnant, parenting, providing elder care, or otherwise navigating family responsibilities and needs. We hope the family-friendly information and resources collected here will be useful to you. You can get started by using the “In This Section” links!


This page is maintained by CSB and SJU ’s Joint Faculty Senate Family-friendly Policies and Practices Committee (FFPPC). FFPPC advocates on issues ranging from parental leave, access to lactation spaces, childcare, elder care, and other dependent concerns, work/life balance, health and wellbeing, and beyond. We conduct periodic surveys, communicate and collaborate with Human Resources and staff and faculty committees, and engage in conversations with members of the CSB and SJU community to find ways to make our campuses more inclusive, accessible, and family friendly! See more information in the Faculty Handbook, section

If you have questions or suggestions, please reach out to one of  FFPPC’s current members:
