Faculty in science and engineering who have or adopt a child can face unique challenges. The existence of the WiSE Program and the networking and support that are now available to WiSE faculty at USC present a special opportunity to address the situation and work to overcome many of the obstacles that potentially adversely affect the careers of WiSE faculty with families. WiSE will provide guidance to help the faculty member navigate negotiations with faculty member's chair or dean, and may when necessary contribute to the cost of hiring a lecturer to teach the course(s) of the WiSE faculty member for the period of the agreed modified duties, and/or give priority funding through the WiSE Major Support for Faculty Program during the first two years after the birth or adoption of a child to offset grants/contracts negatively affected by childbirth or adoption.
The WiSE Program maintains a list of recommended providers (childcare, pediatricians, obgyns, etc.) recommended by members of our community, as well as recommended guidelines in planning parental leave. Please contact WiSE Program Manager, Dr. Sarah Fried-Gintis at firstname.lastname@example.org or 213-740-0996 to request a copy.
