Faculty Present Their Sabbatical Work at the Annual Sabbatical Forum

President Judith Huntington and the Rank, Tenure, and Salary Committee of the Faculty sponsored the annual Sabbatical Forum on April 19, 2012, which is an opportunity for faculty to present their sabbatical work to their colleagues. Five faculty members presented a summary of their work to an audience of colleagues, the Executive Team, Deans, Associate and Assistant Deans, and Campus Directors.

As stated in the Faculty Handbook, sabbatical leaves are intended to promote good teaching by providing an opportunity for the renewal and self-improvement of faculty members. It has long been the College’s tradition that the rewards of such renewal and self-improvement be shared among faculty colleagues, providing a forum for intellectual and scholarly enrichment, general collegiality, and the occasional opportunity to collaborate on future projects.

The following presentations were made at the April 19, 2012 Forum:
