The deadline for submitting sabbatical leave applications for academic year 2017-18 is Friday, February 3, 2017. If you are interested in applying for sabbatical, please submit an application to the Office of Instruction (A202) on or before February 3, 2017. Please do not submit applications via email.
The purpose of a Sabbatical Leave is to improve the professional skills of the faculty member through study, research, and creative work. The College will receive direct benefit of such an experience through the increasing effectiveness of those persons participating in this professional leave program. Each leave recipient, upon return, is required to submit a written report to the College President within one (1) month to substantiate her/his Sabbatical Leave activities.
The Sabbatical Leave Committee will review applications and submit recommendations to the Interim President. The Interim President shall transmit the committee’s recommendations along with her concurrence or alternate recommendation to the Board of Trustees at the April meeting of the Board.
Please keep in mind that changes in the College’s budget circumstances may affect funding for sabbatical leaves. Further, as in the past, decisions on sabbatical leaves may be delayed until the formulation of the College’s budget is completed.
Application forms and instructions for submission can be found in the Forms Library on MyBC.
If you have any questions about the application, please contact Human Resources or the Office of Instruction.
