3. Sabbaticals and Other Leaves of Absence Applicable to the Academic Council and Medical Center Professoriates

It is important that members of the faculty be regularly available to students and colleagues, participating continuously in the educational programs of the University. Leaves of absence, in addition to sabbatical leaves, may not only reduce a faculty member’s contribution to the University, but may also disrupt instructional programs. In general, the granting or denying of leaves is at the discretion of the department Chairs or School Deans.
