7. Academic Staff-Teaching: Lecturers, Senior Lecturers, Artists-in-Residence: Leave Policies

Short absences for personal business, illness, jury duty, military duty, and similar limited absences are normally with full salary. Lecturers, senior lecturers, and artists-in-residence do not accrue vacation or sick leave time, however. It is expected that when scheduling other periods of personal time off, one’s academic responsibilities are taken into consideration. The department chair or program director should be notified in advance of any absence of a member of the academic staff-teaching on active duty that may affect class, laboratory, or other commitments. 

Lecturers, Senior Lecturers, and Artists-in-Residence may apply for leave without salary. Such leaves must be reviewed for approval by the individual’s department chair or program director and dean.
