Faculty & Academic staff Leave Programs and Time Off
At MSU, we understand the value of your time. This is why we offer different leave and time off programs to support our faculty and academic staff for whatever life brings their way. You can use the ALEX Leave of Absence educational tool to better understand how and when to use a leave of absence.
If you need to take leave due to a family or medical need, you may be eligible for family and medical leave. MSU provides family and medical leave to eligible faculty and academic staff in accordance with the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
