Childbirth and Adoption Workload Redistribution Program
The University of Houston has a vested interest in the long-term productivity and retention of its faculty. This workload redistribution program is designed to provide flexibility in the teaching obligations of tenured and tenure track faculty members at UH who are the primary or co-equal caregiver to a newborn infant, or to a newly adopted infant or child.
Recognizing dual career partner assistance is a crucial element in recruiting and retaining excellent faculty, the University of Houston has initiated a program that offers customized assistance to qualified couples. The UH Dual Career Program is a partnership between the departments, deans, the Provost’s Office and broader community. The Program is administered by the Office of Faculty Recruitment, Retention, Equity and Diversity.
