SCF Sabbatical Leave Program
The purpose of the SCF Sabbatical Leave Program is to encourage and sponsor continued professional growth of the SCF faculty. See SCF Sabbatical Leave Policy
The Sabbatical Selection Committee is chaired by the Executive Director of Human Resources and consists of eight full-time tenured faculty of the college elected by the faculty.
Faculty may be rewarded six semester leaves (or two percent of full-time faculty per year, whichever is greater) per academic year. Sabbatical Leaves are granted with seventy-five percent of a faculty member's individual base pay. Application may be made by any faculty who has completed at least two years on continuing contract and who has not received a Sabbatical Leave with pay within the previous five years. Approved Sabbatical Leave professional development activities are these: continuing or pursuing a degree at an accredited institution; updating professional skills; participating in training or in-service education programs; pursuing non-degree related course work; working on formal academic research to produce significant results worthy of publication; taking part in structured professional pursuits not involving formal academic course work (includes writing with intent to publish, artistic endeavors, and technical projects); and pursuing personal growth or self-enrichment activities with a demonstrated benefit to SCF.
Within four weeks of returning to regular contract status after completing a Sabbatical Leave, the recipient is required to provide the Sabbatical Leave Committee with a comprehensive written report including relevant documentation describing how the goals of the Sabbatical Leave were met. The Sabbatical Leave Committee reviews the Report. A copy is maintained in the SCF Library.
