The granting of sabbatical leaves of absence is intended for the mutual benefit of the University and the person granted such a leave. Sabbatical leaves may be granted faculty members in order to provide a period of creative activity for the purpose of furthering professional competence. The granting of such leave will in no case be automatic, and each request for sabbatical leave will be judged on its own merits.
|Duration of Leave||Rate of Pay while on Sabbatical Leave|
|1 Semester||100% of academic year rate|
|2 Semesters||67% of academic year rate|
Money from Outside Sources
Faculty members on sabbatical leave of absence may receive money from fellowships, grants, or other sources.
