What is CCAMPIS ?

The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Program, authorized by the Higher Education Act and administered by the U.S. Department of Education, supports the participation of low-income parents in postsecondary education through the provision of campus-based childcare services. CSUSB's CCAMPIS program, funded for the first time in 2005, is now in its third four-year grant cycle (2013-2017) and has contributed nearly $1.5 million to support the campus's student parents and child care centers. The CCAMPIS grant was secured through the collaborative efforts of Amanda Wilcox-Herzog, professor of psychology and director of the laboratory school for the Institute of Child Development and Family Relations, Barbara Kirby, director of the Children's Center, Deanna Herndon, site director of the Infant Toddler Lab School and Deborah Flores, director of the Student Assistance in Learning (SAIL) Program.
