At Brown, we believe that sabbaticals open the door to crucial professional growth. While on sabbatical, Brown’s faculty apply their creativity and intellectual curiosity in exciting ways, ultimately contributing crucial new insights to academic literature and driving stimulating discussion in the classroom.
Sabbaticals are available to all tenured faculty, junior sabbaticals are available to all tenure-track assistant professors, and scholarly leaves are available to full-time regular lecturers who do not hold staff appointments. Visiting, adjunct, research, clinical and other non-regular faculty are not eligible for sabbaticals. More details on the leave policy can be found in the Guidelines for Leave Eligibility section of this website, and the policies governing leaves can be found in the Handbook of Academic Administration, chapter thirteen.
