Sabbatical Leave

The purpose of sabbatical leave is to provide a period of research and scholarly activity intended to promote the intellectual growth of the individual and school.

Who is Eligible for Sabbatical Leave?

Sabbatical leave may be granted in strictly meritorious cases to faculty members who have continuously served the university for at least six years. 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 gap between five and six month sabbaticals, as well as the gap between eleven and twelve month sabbaticals, needs to be filled with one month of vacation. It is preferred that the vacation time be used during the first month.‚Äč
