Formerly Known As Policy Number: 
3.2.A

The purpose of the sabbatical leave program is to free faculty members from their normal University duties, enabling them to pursue their scholarly interests full-time and maintain their professional standing so that they may return to their posts with renewed vigor, perspective, and insight.

Those eligible to take sabbatical leave are: Assistant Professors, Associate Professors, and Professors in the Tenure Line; Non-Tenure Line Assistant Professors (Research), Associate Professors and Professors (Teaching), (Performance), (Clinical), and (Research); Senior Fellows at designated policy centers and institutes; and Assistant Professors, Associate Professors, and Professors in the Medical Center Line. Center Fellows are not eligible to take sabbatical leave.

Faculty on sabbatical leave remain subject to the policies on conflict of commitment and interest and outside consulting activities, which may be found at http://rph.stanford.edu/Chpt4.html.
