Sabbatical Information

For Sabbatical Requests:

  • Please submit your request to your Chair/Director. The Chair/Director must submit requests for faculty Sabbatical leaves (including the Chair/Director letters of support and ranking) to the Dean by {DATE TBD - typically around the end of November}. In additions, the Chair/Director should consider all the grant and leave applications that their faculty are submitting each cycle/year – both inside and outside the College – in order to determine whether Department/School responsibilities will be adequately covered if all the applications are successful.
  • Please read all information carefully on the downloadable forms. You will turn in completed forms and all supporting documentation to your Department Chair/Director.

For your convenience, the three forms that you need to complete (Application, Form 1 & Form 2) are included as both Word documents and PDF documents.  Please use the version that works best for you. 

{Please check back closer to November to access request forms for 2019-20 Sabbaticals}

For more information about the rules governing sabbatical leaves please see sections 4 & 9 of University Policy 6-314.

For questions about the application process please contact either Cami Rives in the College of Fine Arts Dean's Office () or Trina Rich in the Office of the Associate VP for Faculty ().
