With summer quarter quickly nearing, many 9-month faculty who are not scheduled to teach during the summer are already being placed on “Summer Hiatus” in Workday – a specifically designed “leave of absence” that indicates the faculty member will not be teaching for a designated time period (eg, June 16 – September 15) and temporarily halts pay.
