The office of Lois Kimbriel, Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) program administrator at Arkansas Tech University, is located in Dr. Robert Charles Brown and Jill Lestage Brown Hall suite 333.

Eligible Arkansas Tech University students are encouraged to apply for grant funding from the U.S. Department of Education Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) program.

A cohort of 50 Pell Grant-eligible ATU students who have children is selected each year of the grant to receive funding for child care at daycare facilities that have agreed to partner with Arkansas Tech on the initiative.

Goals for the program include an 80 percent annual persistence rate and a 45 percent graduation rate among ATU students receiving CCAMPIS assistance.
