4.5.4 Educational Leave

A regular faculty member with one year or more of continuous service may request an educational leave without pay of up to 12 months to pursue education or training that will lead to increased job performance.

A formal, written request for educational leave must be submitted to the employee's department chair at least one month before the beginning date of the leave. Educational leave is subject to approval of the department chair, dean or library director and provost.

When an educational leave is granted, it is assumed the employee will return to work for the university.
