There have been occasions where the faculty member's Job Title appears incorrectly. If this happens, please contact HR so they can make sure it is in the system correctly. Most of the information should default on this screen except for the "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 too early in filling out the form. A year in advance is required and the dates are changed each semester, including junior research leave.
Please note that the summary of leave activities has a three-sentence maximum. The more detailed information should be attached as indicated in the next space. If you have problems submitting the form after attaching the files, they may be too large. The faculty member must include all approvers when they prepare the form initially. The following is the suggested format:
Originator: Faculty member email address
Approver: This can be the staff/professional in your unit that verifies sabbatical eligibility and ensures accuracy of information on the form, or it can be left blank
Chair: Automatically entered
AS-Sabrecordkeeper: Automatically entered
Dean: This should now show up by default, but if it doesn't, please type the appropriate associate dean address:
firstname.lastname@example.org (Natural Sciences)
email@example.com (Social Sciences)
Sabbatical AS-Dean Final Approver: Automatically entered
HR: Automatically entered
Copy to Originator: Automatically entered
Copy to Provost: Automatically entered
You should be able to add any additional copy request needed as well.
Named professors receive 100% pay for all types of sabbaticals.
Junior research leaves are for one semester NOT half year.
If after working with your appropriate staff person in the department, you are still experiencing problems processing this form, please call Mary Cleveland at x4020.
