UNO Full-Time Faculty and tenure clock extension:
Currently, the UNO American Association of University Professors (AAUP) Collective Bargaining Agreement (“the contract”) allows for a full year clock stop for women employees who have a note from their physician deeming their pregnancy a disability because they are unable to perform their regularly-assigned duties without injury. This includes a period greater than five consecutive working days up to a maximum of six consecutive months. Likewise a faculty member who becomes the parent of a child by birth or adoption will automatically qualify for a one-year extension of the maximum period of full-time service prior to the acquisition of continuous appointment. This service will be extended by one year for each child, including twins, and other multiple births or adoptions. (AAUP Bargaining agreement 3.9.3 and 126.96.36.199). Any specific questions about the contract can be addressed to the Executive Committee, and especially to the Grievance Officer Mike Peterson. See the full Collective Bargaining Agreement at http://www.unoaaup.org/.

Graduate Students and clock stop:
The University of Nebraska at Omaha CCSGE recognizes the importance of balancing the family and academic needs of students. Accommodation is not a leave of absence, and the expectation is that the student benefiting from accommodation will remain engaged in her or his academic and research work even if at a reduced level (assuming the good health of the student and the infant or child). In addition, UNO will reasonably accommodate its graduate students, including pregnant students, so that they may continue to make progress toward the completion of their degree. Any student who believes that they have not been treated equitably under the provisions of this policy may file a grievance with the Office of Equity, Access, and Diversity.
Doctoral Students may request a leave of absence from the university for up to one (1) year, including pregnancy. In consultation with their department/school and their supervisory committee, students should define the program modifications the leave of absence requires. Requests should indicate a reason for leaving and the expected date of return to the University. If approval is granted, the time limits on the granting of the doctoral degree will be frozen for the time specified (up to one year). Students should file a request with their supervisory committee chair who will forward it to the Dean for Graduate Studies. Approval of the Dean for Graduate Studies is required prior to taking the leave of absence. See more at https://www.unomaha.edu/graduate-studies/current-students/doctoral-requirements.php.
