Dr. Lyness will briefly provide an overview, focusing on common questions: Who is eligible for a sabbatical? Why should I consider taking one, and how do I apply? Drs. Guillet, Gramling, and Hsu will then each share their experiences with taking an academic leave, and the impact it has had on their career development and re-engagement with their work. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion with the attendees. We look forward to seeing you there! At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will be able to: Describe the goals and process for seeking funding for an academic leave at the University of Rochester; Describe the potential advantages and limitations of an academic leave in helping revitalize one's scholarship and career; Discuss the potential usefulness, or lack thereof, of an academic leave for one's own career development in the near future.
