Sabbatical Request Form and Information

The Committee on Sabbaticals and Research Grants and the Vice President for Academic Affairs/Dean of Faculty invite you to submit proposals for sabbaticals to be taken during academic year 2016-2017. Proposals should be submitted no later than September 15. Please send an original and four copies of your proposal along with the Sabbatical Request Form available below and a letter of support from your respective Dean to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs/Dean of Faculty, Hancock Center 1016. Any deviation in plans or additional projects or studies not included in your original proposal must be requested in writing and approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs/Dean of Faculty.

Proposals will not be considered without the completed cover sheet. It is critical that you are specific in stating the outcomes expected to result from the sabbatical.

  1. tenured Faculty with seven years of service who have not had a sabbatical within the past seven years;
  2. (if openings remain) tenure-eligible Faculty with three or more years of service, tenured Faculty who have been granted a sabbatical within the last seven years, and tenured Faculty with less than seven years of service;
  3. (if openings remain) Faculty in tenure ineligible appointments in the ranks following may be considered for sabbaticals: Lecturer, Professional Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Senior Professional Lecturer, Distinguished Lecturer, Distinguished Professional Lecturer, Affiliate Professor and Teaching Associate.

The guidelines used by the Committee in evaluating requests are also listed in Code 6.41. We suggest you read that section to familiarize yourself with them.
