Sabbatical Leave

The sabbatical policy provides tenured faculty with one academic quarter of full pay for every nine quarters of service, allows a fully paid quarter of sabbatical every three years, permits up to twenty-seven quarters of accrued time, and allows faculty to carry over unused accrued time from one sabbatical to the next. These features make it one of the most flexible sabbatical programs in the country. Many of the features of this policy also are available to untenured senior lecturers. For more information, please review Section 3.7 of the Faculty Handbook at
