The Parental Leave Policy was revised in 2014 to establish the University's Policy for faculty parental leaves of absence and extensions of the review timetable for the birth or adoption of children by full-time tenure-line and career-line faculty members in the School of Medicine (SOM). To establish the maximum length of periods for such leaves consistent with the needs and resources of the University. To support faculty members in the School of Medicine as they balance the duties of work and family and to enable flexibility during times of family formation and the effective return to full-time work.


Eligible faculty members are defined as a full-time tenure-line or full-time career-line faculty member with an appointment that began before the expected arrival of a child. Full-time status requires an FTE of 0.75 FTE or greater.
