Abstract:

Childcare, an important consideration for university graduate and post-graduate students who are parents, is seldom a priority area for university administrators and policy makers. Women spend a disproportionate amount of their time on childcare compared to men, even while pursuing full-time studies, and this responsibility tends to impact negatively on their success at graduate school. A critical review of the websites of five top Canadian universities, focusing on their offer of childcare services to graduate students is conducted. Analysing the nature of these services (breadth and depth), as well as the discursive statements outlined on the web-pages through the lenses of critical pedagogy, specifically feminist theory, as well as with, Bourdieu’s cultural capital and Foucault’s notion of power, shows that consideration given to childcare tends to mirror the value that society places on children and women in higher education. Moreover, this paper argues that there is an institutionalized failure of universities, to provide graduate students with the necessary childcare support during their studies and this is a barrier to success that student parents, especially women face in higher education.
