Sabbatical Leave


Sabbatical leaves shall be for purposes that provide a benefit to CSUSM through scholarly research or creative activity, instructional improvement and/or faculty retraining. Such activities provide a crucial benefit to the instructional needs of CSUSM by improving the competency and enthusiasm of the faculty, by keeping the faculty up-to-date in their fields, and by bringing new ideas and concepts to the campus which will be shared with students and other faculty in and out of the classroom. Sabbatical activities also benefit society and promote the reputation of the university by giving CSUSM faculty a chance to refine ideas developed at CSUSM and spread them to the national and international creative, scholarly and educational communities.  More info...
