Benefits for Faculty and Other Academic Appointees

The Division of the Biological Sciences is a diverse academic community that is part of the University of Chicago.  An umbrella organization that includes our basic science and clinical departments, institutes and centers, the Pritzker School of Medicine and graduate programs in the biosciences, we strive to ensure every member of our community is fully supported during their time here.  This page is meant to offer a summary of benefits for faculty and other academic appointees. Additional information on leaves and retirement is here.
