- Campus Policy Revisions Underway
- Family Accommodations Policy -- UCSD has developed a stand-alone policy called the "Family Accommodations Policy" that clarifies the use of family-related policies for academic appointees, including pregnancy and parental leaves, active service-modified duties, and the relationship of policy use to academic review. Some of the major changes include:
Family Accommodations Policy under Review
The elimination of the UC requirement that faculty must have completed 12 months service to be
eligible for paid childbearing leave.
A revision to the language that modification of duties will include partial or full relief from teaching during Active Service Modified Duties (ASMD). Also revised language to allow childbearing faculty to take a combined total of two quarters ASMD and
Revised language to allow for automatic extension of Probationary Period when childbearing leave or parental
leave is reported. Revised language to state that extension will not be granted after
beginning of the sixth year of appointment.
Developed a new section in the Family Accommodation policy allowing all academic appointees, at any level, to defer an academic
review (up to two times) as a family accommodation.
Family Accommodations Reporting Form -- To facilitate the use of family accommodation policies, UCSD has also developed a new form for reporting
family accommodation activities.

Central Funding to Departments -- UCSD implemented a funding program to help eliminate burden of faculty
utilizing benefits. SVCAA now provides $6,000 per quarter to departments engaged in undergraduate education for each ladder-rank
faculty relieved of teaching responsibility during a childbearing or period of ASMD.
Memo re. Central Funding
Training -- UCSD provides training regarding family accommodation policies and benefits to department academic personnel contacts, department chairs, and at New Faculty orientations.
