UGA Libraries Parental Work/Life Information

UGA Libraries recognizes the daily challenges of working parents and we want to prioritize employee wellbeing. We encourage an open dialogue between staff and supervisors, and we encourage supervisors to be flexible in finding solutions to accommodate the needs of working parents. Our goal is to provide support to working parents at all stages of parenthood through our policies and culture. We also want all employees to have access to benefits and accommodations, regardless of gender, length of service, salary, position, department, or other circumstances.

This website is organized into two main categories: Before a New Child and After a New Child. Each section will contain links to relevant University System of Georgia (USG), UGA, and UGA Libraries policies and documents, as well as some FAQs that may be useful.
