If at any point you or your students will be involved in a study that will be using humans as subjects please refer to the Human Subjects Review Application, which will give you some history to what it is and why it is in place.
International Studies & Waiver Form
If you are planning to have your program go overseas for international study, or if you are sponsoring an individual contract in which the student will be traveling overseas it is mandatory that an International Study Abroad Waiver be completed and turned into the Deans Area. If you have any questions regarding the form please contact David McAvity.
The Sabbatical Leave policy is detailed in Article 16: Professional Leave of the Faculty Collective Bargaining Agreement. The curriculum dean maintains the eligibility lists and distributes them to faculty in the middle of each fall quarter, along with a call for leave proposals. Leaves are applied for two years in advance. Eligibility for paid professional leave will accrue at the rate of one quarter per 16 quarters (5.33 years) of full-time equivalent service to the institution (excluding summer school). Normally you can expect to get one quarter of full-pay leave with 5.3 years of eligibility, two quarters with 10.67 years or three quarters with 16 years of eligibility. Each quarter of leave taken erases 5.3 years of eligibility. Faculty with lower eligibility are still encouraged to apply-there may be instances where leave requests do not exhaust the available leave. To encourage faculty to become academic deans, the policy sets eligibility accrual at 2.67 years credit per year of service as a dean. Winter and spring leaves are encouraged due to higher enrollment levels during fall.
