Writing your Sabbatical Proposal

Time: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Julius Ruff, Professor of History

For most faculty, their first sabbatical comes up a year after receiving tenure, which means being ready with a sabbatical proposal soon after the tenure process.  Sabbatical is not automatic.  Dr. Ruff served on the Sabbatical Review committee and will give you guidelines on how to write an approvable proposal.
