Each academic year, faculty are given 15 sick days, up to a maximum of 120 days. A Sick Leave Bank is available to faculty members who need time beyond this allotment. All AAUP faculty members are automatically enrolled to donate one sick day per year to the Bank, effective October 1 of each year.
To access the Bank, someone must use all their sick time and then may borrow an additional 10 days. If more time is needed, a doctor’s note may be provided to the AAUP and the Administration requesting up to an additional 60 days from the Bank.
