Leave of Absence

Individual faculty members sometimes encounter unexpected circumstances, such as a major professional opportunity or a family emergency that may justify an extended absence from the College. If the person is beyond the eighth regular term of service, he or she may request a leave of absence without pay. The request should be submitted to the Dean of Faculty as far in advance as possible. All such leaves require the approval of the President. It is usual institutional practice to approve faculty leaves, whether leaves of absence without pay or sabbaticals, for no more than one year.
