Resolution: Sabbatical Leave Policy Resolution

The Faculty Senate unanimously approved the following resolution. The resolution is in response to a proposal from the Provost’s Office to not approve one-semester sabbaticals. The proposal would be used as a means of cost containment.

Whereas the University of New Mexico is a Carnegie Research Extensive university, and

Whereas one of the three main goals of the University of New Mexico is high quality research and other scholarly creation, and

Whereas sabbaticals play a vital role in the research and creative works mission of the institution, therefore,

Be it Resolved that the Faculty Senate recommends that the University of New Mexico make no changes to the Sabbatical Leave Policy and its implementation.
