The parental leave policy is intended for tenure-track/tenured faculty who have experienced the birth or adoption of a child(ren) within the academic year that the benefit would be used. The benefit could be split between two parents if they are both tenure-track/tenured faculty at the College. The policy allows for a faculty member to choose from one of three options for a leave. Each leave is based on a semester schedule and assumes that the faculty member has a five-course teaching load. There are three options for the leave:
1. Reduction to a 3 course load for the academic year at full pay 2. Reduction to a 2 course load for the academic year at ¾ pay 3. Year off from teaching at 1/3 pay
In order to realize the benefit, the faculty member should meet with the Provost to choose an option for the leave, in consultation with the department/program chair. The College will provide funding for replacement courses for those that are vacated by the person on leave.
