Family Leave Policy

Saint Vincent supports faculty families with flexible family leave and disability policies. Any faculty member welcoming a new child into his or her household (including adoptive parents) is eligible for a two-week parental leave at full pay. This parental leave supplements disability leave granted for pregnancy. New full-time faculty are eligible for either 8 weeks of disability leave or the remaining number of weeks of the semester in which a disability occurs, whichever is longer, at full pay. Depending upon length of service, the disability plan provisions generously provide for pay at varying percentages for up to 26 weeks. Faculty who are new parents may also request an extension of the tenure probationary period, under the provisions of the faculty handbook. Saint Vincent is also willing to provide reasonable accommodations to allow a faculty member to fulfill their contractual duties without the need for leave or, if leave is necessary, to assist the college in arranging appropriate coverage during their absence. Please see here for detailed explanations of these policies.
