The University of Wisconsin-Madison Odyssey Project provides members of our community facing economic barriers with a chance to start college, many of whom are parents of young children. Those who enroll in this introductory humanities course have access to evening child care through the Office of Child Care & Family Resources.

Evening care for Odyssey students is provided by contract with Dane County Parent Council at the South Park Street location. For information about Odyssey, contact Professor Emily Auerbach at eauerbach@dcs.wisc.edu. For child care information, please contact Jen Templin, Child Care Tuition Assistance Program, jen.templin@wisc.edu.
