University Policy 6.2.1
Leaves for Professors and Academic Staff

Cornell University may allow professors and academic staff to take leave from appointed responsibilities under certain circumstances, including arrangements that support a balance between family life and university responsibilities.

The university strongly encourages academic managers and academics to work together to support family-friendly arrangements that anticipate programmatic imperatives and to be flexible in unanticipated family situations.

The terms and conditions governing a leave differ with the individual's academic role, the circumstances of the leave, and the source of funds.
