Family Matters at Mason: An Invitation for Feedback
• Spring Break Camp for school-aged children, 12 and under
• Extended Hours Care (before 7:00am or after 6:00pm) for children 2 -12 years old
We also invite faculty and staff at all Mason locations to share their specific family care challenges, including child care, eldercare, special needs support, and other family care matters.
As you know, the university recently implemented a new Parental Leave Policy for Instructional 9-Month Faculty. Through the survey below, we hope to gather further feedback on family-related challenges and potential University supports. Depending upon your responses, there is a maximum of 12 questions and we anticipate the survey will take less than 7 minutes to complete.
The survey is available for the next couple of weeks at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FamilyMattersatMason. Feel free to email email@example.com if you have any questions.
