  • Shared Leave Pool/Donations – The Staff Shared Leave Pool is a program for staff who have exhausted all leave due to illness or injury. All vacation leave that is used for the program, has been donated by staff. May and June are the primary donation months for campus. Donations do make a difference. Remember that subject to loss vacation expires (if unused) June 30. Regular staff are encouraged to review vacation balances, and consider the Staff Shared Leave Pool. Click here to donate.
