Leave, Vacation, and Scheduled Absences

The University grants twelve weeks of paid parental leave to eligible contract and classified staff, to reflect the belief that the University and the individual staff members both benefit from arrangements that support staff who pursue their careers while raising a family. Trinity also has a Childcare and Dependent committee. Composed of faculty and staff, this has been working to identify solutions to the issues and concerns raised by our community of caregivers.
