Policy Activities

Faculty can better reach their professional goals and feel satisfied working at the University of Maine if they achieve a healthy work-life balance.

To support this healthy balance UMaine has adopted policies enabling faculty members to stop their tenure clock when their families have grown or when they, or a family member, become ill. Another policy lets faculty members with new children teach less, for a time, in favor of other work responsibilities. And Maine Career Connect is available to help newly relocated professionals and their families assimilate into the community.

Watch this brief video to learn more about Maine Career Connect.

Rising Tide policy goals include:

In collaboration with the Office of Human Resources, the Rising Tide team developed an informational brochure highlighting policies such as Stop the Tenure Clock and Alternatives to Teaching, and created work-life balance webpages to provide easy access to consistent information.

The Rising Tide Center will build on previous efforts to implement best practices that advance gender equality at UMaine.
