The Sabbatical Leave Committee is responsible for reviewing all applications submitted by SUOAF/AFSCME members who desire a leave for either six months at full-pay or a year at half-pay. The committee will only review applications of members whose length of service to the university has been six years or more. In addition, members may apply for additional sabbatical leave as long as the leave was taken no less than six years prior. Eligibility for a sabbatical leave is awarded on the basis of merit and for the benefit of the institution. After full review of the application package, the committee will forward any recommendation to the University President, who has the final decision.
Workshop guidelines are provided by Academic Affairs each semester. An application must be completed by the interested member.
