2020-2021 Sabbatical Leave Application is Now Open

A Message from Wendi Dew, Assistant Vice President, Teaching and Learning, and Chair, Sabbatical Leave Committee 

We are pleased to announce that the application process for Sabbatical Leave for the 2020-2021 academic year is now open.

The purpose of Sabbatical Leave is to provide professional renewal for eligible faculty. A sabbatical should provide the individual with a significant opportunity for new, or renewed, achievement and growth through activities such as study, research, writing, creative work and travel, so that the individual’s teaching and/or professional effectiveness may be enhanced.

Full-time, tenured faculty who have at least five years of continuous, qualifying Valencia service and who are not in the Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP) are eligible to apply for Sabbatical Leave but must complete seven years of continuous, qualifying service before a Sabbatical Leave can commence.
