SEAS recognizes the particular challenges faced by faculty in caring for children while still meeting expectations for conference travel.
In particular, mothers of nursing infants and single parents often have to forgo conference travel or personally pay for childcare to allow the travel. With these challenges in mind, and consistent with policies at peer institutions, SEAS is instituting the support of faculty members who need assistance with childcare expenses in order to travel to professional conferences, as follows:
Single parents; two parent families where competing obligations make it impossible for the non‐travelling parent to provide care; mothers of infants needing to stay with an infant under age 24 months, or others with special hardships.
