Considering a 2015/2016 Sabbatical?
Please Note: On March 28, 2014, the University Academic Senate supported the principle of a revised Sabbatical Leave Policy. While final language is being refined and is pending approval of faculty governance and the Board of Trustees, those faculty that are considering applying for a 2015/2016 sabbatical (applications due September 1, 2014), will want to review the following documents.

Sabbatical Leave Request Template (Revised March 2014)
Sabbatical leaves are a focused time for scholarship or creative exploration in the faculty member’s field and are to be of mutual benefit to the applicant and the university. Sabbatical leaves are intended primarily to encourage and promote the professional growth of faculty and enhance their teaching and scholarly effectiveness; thus, the University makes every effort to provide the necessary resources for sabbatical leaves. Since sabbatical leaves are creative and scholarly endeavors for which there is salaried support, the faculty member in turn is required to demonstrate in the sabbatical proposal evidence of thoughtful planning and the potential for a successful sabbatical outcome.
If you plan to submit a sabbatical proposal, download the sabbatical template available under the Sabbatical Proposal tab.
