C230: Military Leave of Absence
(Approved by Faculty on 3/12/74, 4/8/75 and 5/10/78; approved by Regents on 3/14/74, 2/1/75, 5/18/75 and 8/29/78)
1 . Any full-time member of the faculty on regular (i.e., not temporary) appointment as instructor or above is eligible for Military Leave of Absence upon presentation of official military orders indicating that he/she is entering active military duty.
- When a Military Leave of Absence is granted for active duty for training or local emergency during the period of a regular contract (whether nine-, ten-, or twelve-month), the University will continue to pay the faculty member's salary, uninterrupted, up to a maximum of 15 working days per calendar year (see 20-4-7 New Mexico Statutes Annotated, 1978 Compilation). When a Military Leave of Absence is granted for active duty other than annual duty for training or local emergency, such leave is without pay. Unless called to active duty for a "local emergency," faculty may not receive Military Leave of Absence with pay during the period of a summer session supplemental contract.
