Take Your Child to Work Day


TYCTWD was launched in 2017 and welcomed 200 children ages 8-13. Since then, TYCTWD has grown from 5 program areas to 7 and welcomed 280 children in 2019, a 40% increase in participation.

Faculty and staff who participated in the program expressed an interest in bringing younger and older children to TYCTWD activities. In 2019 children as young as 4 and old as 15 accompanied their parents.

Take Your Child to Work Day is sponsored by Staff Council and generously supported by Administration & Finance, Faculty Senate, each participating area, and volunteers across the university. Thank you for your support!
