Faculty Leaves

Once approved, department administrators (chair’s assistant or equivalent) may refer to this Workday Training Guide to process faculty leaves and returns from leave.

The FAS Dean’s Office processes all leaves and returns from leave in Workday for FAS Department/Program Chairs.

Information regarding faculty leaves is included in the Faculty Handbook.

In addition, see the memos to FAS department and program chairs regarding research leave eligibility for tenure-track faculty on FASTAP 2007 and FASTAP 2016 and the procedures and deadlines for submitting a pre-tenure leave proposal.

*Please note: the process for non-tenured faculty leave proposals mentioned in the two above memos is managed through Interfolio. The process for tenured faculty leaves can be found on the OFAS Website. When processing the non-tenured faculty leaves in Interfolio, when creating a case, please select the case type Sabbatical.

See also the policy on Professional Development Leave for instructional (non-ladder) faculty and our most recent memo with instructions for applying.

For detailed procedures of the FAS academic leave process, please refer to the OFAS Leaves and Teaching Relief website.
