The guiding policy for Auburn University's sabbatical program is found in the Faculty Handbook, chapter 3, section 8, “Professional Improvement Leave.”

The Office of the Provost is accepting proposals for sabbatical opportunities for tenured faculty members. Preference will be given to long-term faculty who:

  1. Have had few or no sabbaticals during their tenure with Auburn University.

  2. Propose a structured professional development plan clearly related to their academic discipline.

  3. Plan to serve their sabbatical at another institution, laboratory, or agency external to Auburn University.

Interested faculty are invited to submit an application and a three-page proposal at https://aub.ie/pil on or before November 21, 2022. Submissions will be reviewed by a faculty committee appointed by the Provost, and awards will be made for professional improvement leave commencing fall semester 2023.
