Over the past decade, academic institutions have increasingly begun to focus attention on the importance of work/family and work/life issues affecting students, faculty, and staff. This attention has generated a rapid growth in the number and variety of campus programs designed to address work/family and work/life needs.


The College and University Work/Family Association (CUWFA) has evolved to provide information on work/life issues within the specialized environment of higher education. CUWFA offers services to support the diverse group of professionals contributing to the development of work/life programs and policies on campus: human resource administrators, student services administrators, work/family and work/life managers, child care and elder care program directors, senior administrators, faculty, and others.
