Faculty Leave Carry Over Exemption

December 14, 2021

Dear UMB Faculty,

I’m pleased to share that the University System of Maryland has passed a temporary exception for faculty with 12-month contracts to carry over 480 hours of annual leave into 2022. This is an update to what was shared by President Jarrell in October. The carryover leave should be used by Dec. 31, 2022, and these hours are not available for payout.

I hope that you are using some of your earned leave to rest and recharge as we come to the end of this year. Thank you for all your hard work and commitment to the University of Maryland, Baltimore.


Happy Holidays!
