II-B-6 Leave of Absence

A member or associate of the Faculty may make application for a leave of absence without salary at any time. The request will be granted only if the absence will not seriously impair the functioning of the Department or School. Ordinarily a leave of absence will not be granted for more than one year and, in no case, for more than two.


An application for a leave of absence is submitted to the Provost and must have the endorsement of the Dean of the School and, in departmentalized Schools, of the Chair of the Department.
