Sabbatical Committee

A sabbatical leave is granted by the Institute to members of the faculty as recognition of notable service and as a means by which a teacher's effectiveness may be enhanced, a scholar's effectiveness enhanced, and the Institution's academic programs strengthened and developed. Such leaves provide uninterrupted opportunity for scholarly and professional improvement and the acquisition of new information and experience to maintain and improve currency in one's academic field of specialty.

A faculty member who wishes to apply for a sabbatical leave should read the policy and procedures in the “Agreement between Wentworth Institute of Technology, Inc. and the Wentworth Faculty Federation, Local 2403, American Federation of Teachers AFL-CIO, May 1, 2017 to April 30, 2019, Article VI: Leaves of Absence, Section C: Sabbatical Program”.
