Revised Academic Personnel Manual (APM) 760
APM –760, Family Accommodations for Childbearing and Childrearing
The revised policy was issued effective August 7, 2018. Revisions to APM – 760 are technical changes to equalize the active service-modified duties periods between semester and quarter campuses.
An academic appointee who is a birth mother and who has a full-time appointment for at least one full academic year (three quarters or two semesters) is now eligible for a total period of childbearing leave plus active service-modified duties (ASMD) of three quarters (or two semesters). If she gives birth during the summer or an off-duty term, she is eligible for a total period of active service-modified duties of three quarters (or two semesters). Prior to the policy revision, only two quarters of ASMD was allowed.
