Faculty Absences

Faculty members are reminded to observe the following procedures when an absence impacts instructional and/or other School obligations:

To report a planned absence, email artdes-absence@umich.edu. Include brief details on the reason for the absence, and arrangements you have made to cover instructional activities or other obligations impacted by the absence. Planned time away from School (ex. conference, exhibition opening) should be reported at least one week in advance. Reminder: Avoid scheduling time away from the School at the beginning or end of a semester. Specifically, faculty are asked to be available roughly two weeks prior to the beginning of the fall semester and to be present during the first and last two weeks of classes for each semester.

To report an unexpected absence due to sudden illness, traffic, or other unforeseen situation, call 734-936-0671 and leave a message including your name, the name of the class impacted by the absence, and brief instructions for students. As soon as practical, send a followup email to artdes-absence@umich.edu with the information noted above.

Messages sent to artdes-absence@umich.edu will reach Stamps School Deans, HR staff, senior administrators, and Academic Programs Center personnel.

For those who are ​arranging a substitute to cover absences, please consult with Stamps HR (artdes-hr@umich.edu) prior to finalizing arrangements to ensure compliance with University guidelines. ​Depending on the nature of the absence, the cost of a substitute is paid by the faculty member or the School. ​This is especially important when substitutes are LEO and GEO employees, as there are established guidelines that govern compensation when these employees ​are assigned extra duties.

Working from Home / Telecommuting / Workflex

The University recognizes that the way that people work is evolving, and units may explore a range of options (differing schedules, locations, etc.) to match the needs of employees and units.  This practice is referred to as workflex.

Workflex arrangements may take many forms including: flexible start/stop times for an employee’s regular work schedule; “flexplace” or telecommuting arrangements; occasional “comp” time for exempt employees when additional work hours are required; phased retirement; and a compressed work schedule (ex. 4 10-hour days vs. 5 8-hour days).
