Sabbaticals and Leaves
Sabbaticals are available to all tenured faculty, junior sabbaticals are available to all tenure-track assistant professors, and scholarly leaves are available to full-time regular lecturers who do not hold staff appointments. Visiting, adjunct, research, clinical and other non-regular faculty are not eligible for sabbaticals. More details on the leave policy can be found in the Guidelines for Leave Eligibility section of this website, and the policies governing leaves can be found in the Handbook of Academic Administration, chapter thirteen.
Applications for leaves of any sort (including unpaid leaves of absence) should be made through the chair of the faculty member’s unit in the January preceding the academic year in which the leave is to be taken. All leaves are subject to the approval of the Dean.
Each fall, the Dean's office will publish brief reports on sabbatical research undertaken in the previous academic year. Previous years' reports can be found in the "related links" section below.
Course buyouts are governed by a separate policy, covered in the Handbook, Chapter Seven. To request a course buyout please use this form. Please note that funds used to buy out courses do not accrue as GIF balances.
