Information session: Faculty leaves

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

Learn about the various leaves available to UW faculty. We'll cover the length, eligibility, and procedure for a range of leaves (pregnancy and parental leaves, compassionate leave, sick leave, and more). We'll also discuss the repercussions or challenges associated with taking leaves as a faculty member. During your leave, what happens to your teaching load and/or courses? research projects? lab? grad-students? post-docs? 

Who is this for?

  • Faculty currently navigating a leave
  • Faculty considering taking a leave
  • Faculty who want to be more familiar with their options for the future
  • Anyone who wants to be able to support their colleagues through a leave or recommend a leave to a colleague
