Work-Life Policies

As one of The Chronicle of Higher Education‘s “Great Colleges to Work For,” the University of Mississippi’s commitment to work-life balance speaks for itself. In addition, the university is the only Southeastern Conference school included among the top 10 on the newspaper’s Honor Roll, which recognizes schools that scored the highest in employee satisfaction across 12 categories. Part of this acknowledgement stems from our efforts to provide employees with a healthy work environment. Below is a list of policies that reflect our commitment to work-life integration and a family-friendly academic workplace.
