6.2.3 Leaves/Absences With Pay Approved Absences with Pay

  1. Sabbatical Leave

Sabbatical leaves of absence are intended for the mutual benefit of the institution and the person granted such a leave. Sabbatical leaves may be granted to faculty members to provide a period for creative activity to further professional competence. The granting of such leave will in no case be automatic, and each request for sabbatical leave will be judged on its own merit (See "Sabbatical Leave Program").
