Paid Parental Leave Policy

Dear Faculty and Staff:

As you are likely aware, our Board of Trustees (BOT) endorsed our financial model for a six-week paid parental leave policy for faculty AND staff at the University of Memphis. We will now move forward with defining the details of the policy and advancing it through the University policy approval process. The BOT requested an update regarding implementation at the December board meeting. This policy is long overdue, and I look forward to implementation in the next few months.

Warm Regards,

M. David Rudd
President | Distinguished University Professor
