Faculty and administrative/professional employees who are employed on an academic year basis are considered to be in unpaid vacation status when the University is not in session except for the seven-day period prior to the beginning of classes each semester and the time between the end of the semester and commencement. Fiscal year faculty who have completed 3 continuous months of service receive 22 days of vacation per year. Executive Memorandum C-46, “Revised and New Leave of Absence Policies for Faculty, Continuing Lecturers, and Administrative and Professional Staff” explains the amount of vacation that different classifications of administrative/professional staff receive depending on the number of years of service. Maximum vacation accrual for all faculty and administrative/professional staff is 44 days. Vacation must be scheduled in a manner which is convenient to the department or unit in which the staff member works. The only approval required is that of the supervisor or department head.
