The University will not respond unreasonably to requests for unpaid leaves of absence of less than a full semester for the purpose of caring for a newborn or newly-adopted child, or for the care of a child with an emergency medical condition. The part-time faculty will provide his/her supervisor with as much notice as possible of such situations, and the supervisor will make reasonable attempts in such cases to accommodate requests for leaves of absence of less than a full semester. If the supervisor is unable to grant a request for leave for less than a full semester, the faculty member will receive authorization for a full semester of unpaid leave.
