Sabbatical leave provides an opportunity for professional development for individual faculty members. Faculty may choose to use this opportunity to improve their college teaching; to grow in their discipline, such as engaging in scholarly research, publication, or artistic performance or productivity; or to enhance their leadership potential.
Both one and two-semester sabbaticals are available to full-time faculty with at least six years of service.
