Are you ready for a sabbatical?

2017-2018 Sabbaticals

Professional development is an essential component of institutions of higher education, as they continue to evolve to serve students more effectively. The sabbatical leave provides seasoned faculty the opportunity to advance or modify their skill sets in order to serve the college in a greater capacity. For the 2017-2018 academic year, either one year-long sabbatical or two semester-long sabbaticals shall be granted. Any full-time (contract) faculty member, who has completed at least six consecutive years of regular service, may apply now for a sabbatical leave in 2017-2018.

For further information about application procedures and guidelines, please review the Merritt College Sabbatical Handbook 2019-2020 and attend the orientation on Tuesday, October 4 (see timeline below).
