Leave Policy

Family and Medical Leaves (FMLA)

Faculty members requesting leave under FMLA must apply through the Office of Human Resources

The Family and Medical Leave Policy for faculty can be viewed in the Faculty Handbook under FMLA. Full instructions regarding applications for FMLA leave are available on the HR website or by calling the askHR helpline at 574-631-5900. Faculty members applying for FMLA leave are strongly encouraged to make their department chairperson aware of their application so that departments can adequately accommodate any necessary curricular and/or administrative changes. The Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs also serves as a resource for FMLA.
