The Sloan Award for Faculty Career Flexibility

The Sloan Award for Faculty Career Flexibility was awarded to UC Berkeley (with UC Davis) in 2006. The award was used to increase awareness and use of family responsive policies, shift the academic culture further toward acceptance of family friendliness and family responsiveness, and continue to push through a number of relevant initiatives. Data analyses from surveys conducted in 2002-2003 and 2009 at UC Berkeley show impressive gains in awareness and use of core family responsive policies such as tenure clock extension and active service modified duties (ASMD), as well as overwhelming support for family responsive policies by faculty. The most recent cohort of assistant professor women at UC Berkeley also have significantly higher rates of children than past cohorts.

The UC Faculty Family Friendly Edge Sloan Grant

The award from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to the campus's Work/Family Initiative is earmarked for work to assess, revise and implement a package of "family-friendly" policies designed to make flexible career paths and part-time work status viable options for ladder-rank faculty with caregiving responsibilities.
