A full-time faculty member serving on a ten-month academic year contract is entitled to fifteen calendar days of paid annual leave which shall be the last fifteen days of the ten-month contract period, unless otherwise designated at the time of appointment. Such paid annual leave may not be carried forward into the next fiscal year.

A part-time faculty member appointment on at least a 50% of full-time basis and serving on a ten-month academic year contract is entitled to annual leave on a pro-rata basis. Such leave shall be taken as the final days of the ten-month contract period, unless otherwise designated at the time of appointment. Such paid annual leave may not be carried forward into the next fiscal year.

A full-time faculty member serving on a fiscal-year contract (12-months) shall earn 22 days of annual leave per calendar year at the rate of 6.77 hours per pay period. Beginning on the 21st year of employment, 25 days per year is accrued.

Creditable Sick Leave
Sick leave for faculty members serving on a ten-month academic year contract is accrued at the rate of 1.25 work days per month at full salary. Part-time faculty members who are employed at least 50% time are eligible for sick leave benefits proportionate to their percent employed. Sick leave may be accumulated without limitation.

Sick leave for faculty members serving on a fiscal year contract (12-months) is accrued as 15 days per calendar year at the rate of 4.62 hours per pay period. Part-time faculty members who are employed at least 50% time are eligible for leave proportionate to their percent employed.

Sick leave may be accumulated without limitation.

Non-Creditable Sick Leave (Collegial Leave) 
When a faculty member is incapacitated for brief periods of illness, injury, or childbirth, the “collegial” method of accommodating faculty disability is preferred. This is the practice whereby colleagues of the disabled faculty member – on a voluntary basis – take over his or her classes and other essential functions, in addition to carrying on their regular work. This provision may be employed when practicable up to a maximum of twenty-five (25) work days for each faculty member in one fiscal year. After that time, creditable sick leave shall be charged.
