Is there a family leave policy for graduate students? If so, describe.

Not as far as I know. The university health center is available to all students.
Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.
We have a large fraction of female faculty and a very female-friendly environment. As one women scientist said recently, we have enough women in the department that we no longer have to keep justifying ourselves: we are "over the hump".
Has the institution had a Climate for Women in Physics Site Visit or Gender Equity Conversation?
