Institutional support leave with pay may be approved by the President for any full-time employee based on the availability of funds and if the absence will not hamper the normal routine operations of the college. Institutional support leave is related to the employee's expertise and/or position of employment. Institutional support leave directly benefits the college and the employee's participation is requested by the college.
Examples of institutional support leave include but are not limited to business and industry partnerships with the college, grant-specified training, community partnerships through the college, accreditation activities related to employee’s college, etc.
Any activity requiring more than five (5) regularly scheduled work days of institutional support leave during the leave year will require the Chancellor's written approval. Approved activities sponsored by ACCS or the employee’s college are part of the employee’s regularly assigned duties and are not a type of leave.
