Policy Purpose and Description
The University's Parental Leave Policy (Operations Manual, III-22.8) allows new parents who are caregivers time off to spend with a child added to the family through birth or adoption and, to the extent permitted by state law, to be paid during the leave. The policy also allows parents to adapt their work schedule and duties to help reduce conflict with parental obligations.
Not-yet-tenured faculty who are principal or co-equal caregivers for a new child may also be entitled to an extension of the probationary period.
