For all cases when a faculty member will be absent, the faculty member is responsible for notifying his or her supervisor before class, if possible. Professional development/activity - faculty absence from one or more class sessions as a result of travel due to professional development and/or any other sanctioned professional activity requires prior authorization via the completion and approval of the Professional Travel Authorization Request.
Illness/Personal Emergency - In all other cases in which a faculty member is absent from a class session (e.g. due to illness or other personal emergencies) the faculty member must process the appropriate leave request. If a faculty member is absent three or more consecutive days, the faculty member should consult with Human Resources to request FMLA.
