SEAS commits to providing a family-friendly atmosphere for its faculty. This maternity accommodation recommendation aims at furthering this objective.
Tenured/tenure-track (TT) faculty in SEAS will be relieved of all teaching for a semester (without penalty in the prior or future semesters). Non-TT faculty will have a 50% teaching load reduction for one semester (without penalty in the prior or future semesters). These accommodations should follow the birth of a baby, and be implemented within one year of the birth, to accommodate recovery and the peak feeding needs.
In addition, all faculty and staff may request access to a lactation room as needed.
This would of course be in addition to the stop-the-clock provisions for both genders.
The above policy compliments the State benefit information about leaves due to pregnancy, childbirth and childcare.
