PUBLIC SERVICE LEAVE OF ABSENCE WITHOUT PAY

Murray State University recognizes that faculty and staff, as all citizens, may wish in the fulfillment of civic responsibilities to seek public office, to serve at the request of a public official, or to assist in the campaign of a candidate for public office.

The University will consider granting a professional public service leave of absence, without pay, for any employee seeking public office or assuming a major position in a political campaign or for either appointed or elected public service. Such requests require approval of the Board of Regents prior to the commencement of such activity.
