Welcome to Parenting@UNC! This site was created for UNC-Chapel Hill student, faculty, and staff parents and parents-to-be as a collaboration between multiple groups on campus that noticed a need for a collective web space where UNC parents could find resources to help the whole family thrive at UNC. Partners in this initiative include the Carolina Women’s Center, the Chancellor’s Childcare Advisory Committee (CCAC), the Student Advisory Committee to the Chancellor (SACC), and the UNC-CH Student Parent Association.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the resources in the pages below or suggestions for things we have omitted. UNC’s Benefits representatives can also help employees answer questions about benefits eligibility.

Note: Because the leave provisions for students, faculty, and staff are so different, they are outlined on each group’s respective resource pages. Currently, there is no formal policy governing undergraduate students’ family leave, but graduate students will find those policies detailed here. Faculty will find policies concerning Family and Medical Leave here, and staff will find those policies here.
