I am pleased to submit for formal campus review proposed revisions to UC
San Diego Policy and Procedure Manual (PPM) 230-15, Family
Accommodations Policy. The proposed revised policy and a summary of the
revisions are available at:
In 2014-2015, the Academic Senate, in partnership with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI), convened a Joint Academic-Administrative Task Force on Family Accommodations (Task Force) to consider more competitive and flexible family accommodations for UC San Diego faculty. The proposed revisions to PPM 230-15 are responsive to recommendations made by the Task Force, which are intended to 1) expand benefits to increase equity, 2) reduce the perceived stigma associated with utilizing family accommodations, 3) and increase use of benefits.
Key proposed revisions to PPM 230-15 include:
* Addition of parental bonding leave for all parents with a new child
entering the home, up to six weeks paid
The proposed revisions are currently being reviewed by the UC San Diego Academic Senate. If you have any comments or questions regarding the proposed revisions to PPM 230-15, please contact Kelly Lindlar, Director of Academic Policy Development, Academic Personnel Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 1, 2016.
