Leaves With Partial Pay
The Policies of SUNY’s Board of Trustees also provide for leaves of absence with partial pay, again for purposes “consistent with the needs and interests of the University.” These will typically occur to enable a faculty member to accept a prestigious award (e.g. Rockefeller, Guggenheim, and American Council of Learned Societies) at a time when he or she is not eligible for a sabbatical leave, and when acceptance of the award will result in a reduction in income. As a general rule, such leaves will be supported at no more than the lesser of one-half of salary or the amount of the external award or grant. A leave with partial pay is an exceptional privilege and may be granted only where it is clear that the leave will significantly advance the applicant’s standing within his or her discipline or profession and will advance the educational and research missions of his or her School.
