Sabbatical Retreat & Grant

Monday, February 23, 2009 (Around 5 years ago)

Sabbaticals, whether the first or the fifth, are awaited eagerly by faculty. They allow faculty to step away from teaching, advising, and campus service commitments, and offer time and space for research, scholarship, and creative work, pedagogy and course development, and intellectual and personal refocusing, recharging, and renewal. Yet sabbaticals still occur in the midst of a full slate of responsibilities, perhaps leaving faculty little time to imagine possibilities for themselves and think through professional and personal goals.

In order to provide faculty a time and a space to imagine and to think, the John S. Kendall Center for Engaged Learning is pleased to introduce a special initiative—a sabbatical retreat with an opportunity for special grant funding during the sabbatical year—available to faculty who are eligible for a first sabbatical in 2009-10, or a second or successive sabbatical from 2009-2012 (either one semester or full year).. For more information, please see the Kendall Center website. Deadline to apply is Friday, March 13.
