Sabbatical Leaves

The Unit 3 Collective Bargaining Agreement, Article 27 reads:

27.1 - Sabbatical Leaves are intended to benefit the University by affording faculty employees time to take advantage of professional development opportunities such as conducting research, engaging in scholarly and creative activities, improving instruction, or obtaining faculty retraining.

27.2 - A full-time faculty unit employee shall be eligible for a sabbatical leave if s/he has served full-time for six (6) years [on] campus in the preceding seven (7) year period prior to the leave and at least six (6) years after any previous sabbatical leave or difference in pay leave. Credit granted toward the completion of the probationary period of service [at another CSU campus] shall also apply towards fulfilling the eligibility requirements for sabbatical. A leave of absence without pay or service in an academic administrative appointment excluded from the bargaining unit shall not constitute a break in service for eligibility requirements.

For more information, see Article 27 [PDF] of the CBA.
