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.
All units of the university, excluding the Weill Cornell Medical College
