As of September 2017, the Dean of the Faculty offers up to ten coaching sessions for professorial faculty following a birth or adoption. The purpose of the coaching sessions is to provide faculty with additional support at a time that most parents find to be very challenging in terms of schedules and time availability. Faculty will choose their own goals for the coaching, and conversations will be confidential. Faculty can utilize these coaching sessions in the period of time beginning three months before and ending twelve months after the birth or adoption of their new family member.
The coaching will be provided by Leader Academic, a coaching and training organization that specializes in work with academics and offers assistance with both career goals and life balance.
