University Committee on Sabbatical Leaves

KU Lawrence Faculty


By action of the University Council on September 18, 1975, the University Committee on Sabbatical Leaves was assigned the responsibility of evaluating all sabbatical leave applications. In order to provide an opportunity to discuss procedures to be followed in the preparation and review of applications for sabbatical leave, the committee will hold an open meeting for all interested faculty and academic staff members, chairpersons and deans at 4 p.m. Monday, May 8, 2017, in the Centennial Room of the Kansas Union.

Applications for sabbatical leave should reach the Office of the Provost with the endorsement of the department chairperson and/or the dean or director no later than 5 p.m., November 1, 2017. The individual schools, college, divisions and/or departments may establish specific earlier dates for submitting applications for review, evaluation, and endorsement.

Any eligible faculty or academic staff member may submit an application for a sabbatical leave without the endorsement of the department chairperson, dean, or director. Such applications must reach the Office of the Provost by 5 p.m. September 1, 2017, and will be referred to the appropriate department and/or school or division for comment. They will be treated in the same manner as other sabbatical leave applications.

Please consult the Sabbatical Leave Policies and Procedures link regarding the policies and criteria that will be used in evaluation of sabbatical leave applications. The application and the memo are available online.
