Now Accepting 2016-2017 Sabbatical Leave Applications

We are pleased to announce that applications for sabbatical leave for the 2016-2017 academic year are now being accepted. The purpose of sabbatical leave is to provide professional renewal for eligible faculty, administrators and professional staff employees.

Sabbatical leave has provided employees like Brian Macon, Yasmeen Qadri and Tim Grogan significant opportunities for new, or renewed, achievement and growth through activities such as study, research, writing, creative work and travel so that they return to work with renewed vigor, perspective and insight.
