Teaching Relief for Tenure-Track Faculty

The intent of teaching relief is to adjust for time a tenure-track/tenured faculty member loses toward his/her research and scholarship because of a nonacademic leave. Teaching relief is not a leave and takes place before or after the nonacademic leave.

Adjustment of Faculty Duties for Nontenure-Track Faculty

If you are a nontenure-track (full-time or part-time benefits-eligible) faculty member, depending on the beginning and ending dates of a parental, family illness, or medical leave, your duties may be adjusted to accommodate curricular and departmental needs during the semester(s) in which the leave occurs.
