Family Friendly

A Family-Friendly Employer

Recognizing the importance of happy and healthy families, the UA offers a range of programs and services to support your role as a parent, partner, or caregiver. Sick and emergency child care, lactation resources, paid parental leave, and elder-care resources are among the services available to UA employees. Tenure-track and continuing status professionals can delay their promotion time clocks for the birth or adoption of a child, or to attend to aging parents, family concerns, or health issues.
