Junior Sabbatical (Junior Faculty Professional Development Leave)
For tenure-track faculty, SBS is pleased to offer Junior Faculty Professional Development Leaves, intended to allow junior faculty the opportunity to pursue their research interests independently of teaching or other institutional responsibilities. A junior sabbatical may be taken in the second semester of the faculty member’s third year of appointment, or in either semester of the fourth or fifth years.
