Sabbatical leave may be granted in "strictly meritorious cases" to faculty members who have continuously served the university for at least six years. The purpose of the sabbatical leave is to provide a period of research and scholarly activity intended to promote the intellectual growth of the individual and school. Applicants must agree to serve the university or another Regents' institution for no less than one year following the end of the sabbatical period. A report must be provided to the applicant's Dean within 90 days of the end of the sabbatical period. Funding for the leave must be arranged by the individual or department.
The call for sabbatical applications is typically issued by the Office of Faculty Affairs during the fall semester. For more detailed information and related documentation, visit the KUMC Faculty Affairs' Intranet page on Sabbatical Leave.
