This virtual resource center is our effort to assist faculty, staff and students who are challenged by the need for accessible, affordable and quality childcare.

Paid Parental Leave Policy


UNCW offers Paid Parental Leave to promote physical and mental health for employee families, increase worker retention, and improve worker productivity and morale. Paid Parental Leave provides four weeks of paid leave to parents for the bonding period (“Paid Parental Bonding Leave” or “Bonding Leave”) with a child due to birth, adoption, or foster care placement. The birth mother may receive an additional four weeks of paid leave for recuperation from the period of disability following the birth (“Paid Parental Recuperation Leave” or “Recuperation Leave”).
