Parental Leave Proposal

  • USAC Proposal on Parental Leave (October 2021)
  • At the October 2021 USAC meeting, the Parental Leave proposal, written by the Staff Life Committee, was approved by voting members.  Shortly thereafter, the proposal was sent to Vice Chancellors Kopstain and Churchwell, and to Chief HR Officer Cleo Rucker for consideration.  While we do not have a timeline of when and/or if any changes to the current Parental Leave policies will be adopted, we know VU Administration is interested in our proposal and is reviewing all staff leave types.  We will continue to share information as it becomes available.
