SUBJECT: Disseminating Checklist for Department Chairs of Faculty Requesting Parental Leave

DATE: May 11, 2012

Background

We conducted an informal survey regarding how well Department Chairs understood the Checklist provided by the Provost regarding guidelines for faculty requesting parental leave.  In emails sent to twelve Department Chairs in the College of Liberal Arts, only one Department Chair knew of the checklist.

Recommendation

We recommend widely disseminating the checklist to the Council of Deans, Department Chairs and incoming Chairs and Administrators.
