Work-Life Balance

Work-Life Balance

In 2008, Santa Clara University received a $200,000 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Faculty Career Flexibility from the American Council on Education. The award was given in recognition of Santa Clara's efforts to improve career flexibility and work-life balance for faculty. One of those efforts is the Career Flexibility and Work-Life Balance for SCU Faculty: A Toolkit for Chairs and Deans. Originally published in 2009 and updated in August 2015, this toolkit gathers information about all the available leaves, flexible course scheduling options, and benefits in one clear booklet. Summaries of these resources are also available through the Support for Faculty portal on the Provost's website.
