Work/Life and Wellness

Faculty members live full lives, and it is sometimes challenging to manage everything in work and career. The Dual Career Network helps Syracuse University faculty and their families get settled in their new city. Faculty leaves may also be necessary for a variety of family circumstances, including the birth or adoption of a child. For more information, or for assistance navigating the myriad resources the University has to offer, please contact us.
