December 3 is the deadline for applications for the President’s Sabbatical Award. Applicants will need to complete form 105-100 that requires the signature of their provost. In addition, they will need to write a 1,000 word statement, including a 50 word executive summary, describing how the sabbatical will benefit their professional development and serve the College and our students. Both nine and 12-month faculty who have completed five years at the College are eligible for the award. Faculty members on the Personnel Services Committee will evaluate the proposals and forward recommendations to President Robert G. Templin, Jr. for the final decision.
This is a golden opportunity to receive a semester sabbatical with full pay and benefits. In the past, recipients have used the sabbatical to write books, compose music, develop art exhibits, and devise new and inventive teaching strategies. The sabbatical is not intended for completion of doctoral work. Thirty-one faculty members have won the award, representing a variety of disciplines including English, art, history, biology, music and physics, to name a few. Each campus has representatives on the Personnel Services Committee who can answer questions about the President’s Sabbatical Award.
Please forward an electronic copy of your application by December 3 to Dr. Charles Errico, chair of the Personnel Services Committee.
