All faculty members planning a sabbatical leave are required to submit a sabbatical proposal form (.pdf) (Word) which includes a request to the Provost for a sabbatical supplement. Here is a list of instructions and dates that you will need to remember:
a. clearly defined and articulated goal
b. a well thought out plan for achieving that goal (where and how will you do this; will you need/apply for outside funding)
c. an explanation of how this project fits into your overall professional development plan (how will it help you accomplish your short/long-term research/creative and pedagogical goals)
d. an anticipated clear, tangible product (the results of your leave)
The sabbatical proposal is required even if you are not requesting a supplement. The deadline for the sabbatical proposal form is September 15 of each year. Please send these sheets to Jalene Fox electronically at email@example.com.
If your leave plans depend on external funding or special arrangements to complete, be sure to have a back-up plan in case the external funding or arrangements do not work out.
For additional information on sabbaticals, please refer to the Faculty Handbook.
