Sabbatical leave for tenure-line faculty is governed by University Policy HR-17. This note describes departmental policy about how departmental teaching requirements are affected by a period of University-approved sabbatical leave.
- In the event of a sabbatical lasting an entire academic year, the whole departmental teaching requirement applying to that academic year will be waived.
- In the event of a one-semester sabbatical, the faculty member's teaching requirement for the other semester will be as described in the following table:
|If normal annual teaching requirement is...||Then one-semester teaching requirement will be...|
|9 credits or fewer||Two-thirds of normal annual teaching requirement|
|9-12 credits||6 credits|
|12 credits or more||One-half of normal annual teaching requirement|
This policy was adopted by the Department 2/16/2007. (Revised 2/29/2012)
