Sabbatical leaves provide faculty with opportunities for professional development, scholarly pursuits, and professional and intellectual renewal. Projects pursued during a sabbatical are expected to result in improved teaching and professional performance, enhanced research and / or artistic activities, and a renwed capacity for service to UM and the community.
Deadline: March 29, 2013 (for Fall 2014 and Spring 2015).
Eligibility: To be considered, faculty must have begun employment in August 2006 or earlier. The Faculty Handbook reads, "Tenured faculty members who have completed at least six years of continuous service at the University are eligible for consideration for sabbatical leave." This means that faculty must be tenured and they must be in the 7th year (or more) of continuous full-time service since their appointment at UM or since the end of their last sabbatical year.
