The University provides leaves of absence to enable employees to attend to personal and professional obligations and for periods of disability. The policy for workers covered by a collective bargaining agreement is contained in that agreement. All requests for leaves should be submitted to your department Dean and the Department of Human Resources for approval.
For detailed information, employees can consult the Staff Policy Manual for each type of leave below:
