Nonacademic Leaves of Absence
A nonacademic leave of absence is required when faculty
members will be absent from work for more than two weeks for
the purposes of taking parental leave, family illness leave,
medical leave, military leave, jury duty, and/or personal leave.
This chapter contains basic information about nonacademic leaves,
including a leave eligibility chart, definitions of terms,
procedures for applying for and returning from a leave, and
information about whom to contact with questions.
Because of the complexity of nonacademic leave policies, faculty
members who are considering requesting a leave are strongly

- Get in touch with the appropriate contact listed below and/or your
faculty dean to discuss your individual situation and how the nonacademic
leave policies would apply to you.
