Family-Friendly Policies

Improving quality of life of faculty throughout their academic tenure is essential for their success in becoming established leaders in their field. Family-friendly policies that help achieve this goal include:

  • Expand the availability of childcare, especially when lack thereof affects faculty recruiting results
  • Provide support for dual career hiring
  • Identify family friendly policies that can be implemented at college level
  • Coordinate and advocate for policies that should be formalized at university level


Current Projects:

  • University-wide childcare committee
