Full-time faculty are entitled to twenty paid vacation days per year.* Beginning with the anniversary date marking the 25th year of full-time employment, the entitlement for full-time faculty increases to twenty-five paid vacation days per year.
Faculty who are hired after the beginning of the year will be eligible for a prorated number of vacation days during that year.
Part-time faculty must be employed at least .2FTE to earn vacation days. The number of vacation days for which they are eligible will be a prorated portion of the full-time vacation day entitlement and will be based on their FTE.
Unused vacation days cannot be carried over from one year to the next. Unused vacation days are not payable upon termination.
Scheduling of vacation is at the discretion of the Department Chair. Faculty should submit vacation requests sufficiently in advance to their respective Department Chair or designee that each request can be confirmed to be consistent with the department’s academic schedule and teaching, clinical, research and administrative responsibilities.
*Departments may track days on either a calendar year (January-December) or academic year (July-June)
