Faculty leave requests: let Allen know by October 15

If you are a faculty member thinking about requesting a professional leave either through the Assigned Research Appointment or the Faculty Improvement Leave mechanisms for the 2020-21 AY, please complete the leave PDF form (including relevant attachments) and then email them to Allen no later than Tuesday, October 15, 2019, at 5 p.m. Although faculty leave requests are not due to the dean until November 1, it is important that we know about faculty requests well beforehand because leaves have an impact on our departmental teaching schedules — thus, it is important that we know about possible contingencies in advance. Failure to meet the October 15 notification deadline will remove one from consideration for leaves next year. If you have any questions, please talk to Allen well in advance of the October 15 deadline.
