Here's what Nancy Costykian, head of the Work-Life Office, told me, pasted
below.  They are already looking into this.

Note that she said to email her with requests for more lactation room support,
and/or to go to your department administrators.  Her email is
nancy_costikyan at harvard.edu.  (and she's totally on our side, by the way...)


"We are about to put out an invitation to the schools to partner with us on
locating lactation rooms
onsite. We will buy 5 hospital grade pumps, and the first 5 schools to agree
to provide and maintain an appropriate room (not a bathroom, thank you very
much) will get a pump from us without charge.  But your email makes me
realize that I need to add to this invitation a request that they notify us
of any current lactation room arrangements, so that we can post them.  If
anyone you know wants to email me directly with a request for more lactation
room support and/or will go to their local administrator with the request,
that will help the schools understand the need a bit better. Thanks for
sending this my way!!"
