Resolution for the Provision of  
Parental Leave for Graduate Students

Whereas, North Carolina State University currently has no parental leave policy for graduate students, and

Whereasa graduate student must finish his/her degree within a specified period of time, and

Whereas, currently a parental leave of absence for a graduate student results in the student losing full-time enrollment status (which may result in loss of health insurance as well as international students losing their student visa status), and

Whereas, faculty and staff at North Carolina State University are granted a 6-week parental leave for the arrival of a new child

Therefore be it Resolved, that North Carolina State University implement a Parental Leave Policy for graduate students similar to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill policy that would provide as a minimum
