Dear CLAS Unit Heads,
Please encourage sabbatical eligible faculty members in your department to attend the Sabbatical Forum: The winter Sabbatical Forum is being hosted by the Faculty Development Committee on Thursday, March 29, from 3:30-5:00 pm in 308 Padnos Hall. This bi-annual event allows individuals to meet with members of the FDC committee to answer any questions they may have .
Although sabbatical guidelines will be reviewed, the forum will primarily focus on concept building for research. Encourage anyone applying to attend and bring any ideas they may have for their sabbatical. Committee members are also available to conduct pre-reads.
Thank you in advance for helping to get the word out!
David Stark, Chair, Faculty Development Committee
