The Office of the Provost awarded 31 faculty members study leave for the 2000-2001 academic year. The leave is intended to provide tenured faculty members with a break from their regular university responsibilities to write books, conduct research, develop new teaching methods, and pursue other activities that help them to develop further expertise in their disciplines.
Recipients may receive leave for one semester at full-time salary or for two semesters at half-time salary. The awards are granted upon recommendation of an advisory committee composed of former faculty study leave awardees.
The Office of the Provost provides funds to hire replacements for faculty members on study leave. These funds come from the provost’s allocation of the overhead costs that the university recovers from research grants and contracts financed by the federal government and industry.
