Faculty should complete the Sabbatical Leave Request Webform
located at http://www.udel.edu/webforms
under the “Blanks” tab.
Most of the information should pre-populate on this page except for "Initial Appointment" and "Period of Leave Requested." If the period of leave you are requesting is not listed in the drop down box, you may be filling out the form too early. Sabbatical and research semester leaves must be submitted one year in advance of the leave, and the dates in the Sabbatical Leave Request Webform are changed each semester to reflect this timing.
NOTE: Research semester leaves are for one semester NOT half-year.
If your current job title, contract period, and/or previous leave information is incorrect, please contact your Department's HR Liaison to request the appropriate updates.
Please note that the "Summary of leave activities" box has a 500-character limit (about 2-3 sentences). Additional information outlining the proposal for leave activities should be attached to the webform where indicated, along with the faculty member's CV and the sabbatical report from the faculty member's last leave, if applicable. If you have problems submitting the form after attaching the files, they may be too large. All attached files on this page must total less than 31 MB.
Please follow the below format when submitting the Sabbatical Leave Request Webform for approval:
Originator: The faculty member's email address will pre-populate
Approver: This can be the administrator in the Department who verifies sabbatical eligibility and ensures accuracy of information on the form, or, it can be left blank.
Chair: The Chair's email address will pre-populate
Dean: This should pre-populate with the correct Associate Dean, but if it doesn't, please add the appropriate Associate Dean's email address.
