Faculty Reassigned-Time (by Departments, through Deans' Offices)

  • Funding group: Deans of communications, business, education, and Elon College
  • Eligible to apply: Faculty on full-time, ongoing contracts.
  • Scope of funding: Each academic department will administer reassigned course time proportional to the number of its full-time faculty. Reassignments will be given for teaching activities that are not counted as part of the course load, for service (contributions to the life of the University), pedagogical development, and for professional activity/scholarship. Examples of these activities are described in the Criteria for Evaluation of Tenured and Tenure Track Faculty (Faculty Handbook, II-8-E-3). It is expected that reassigned time will be distributed in a manner suited to address the University’s, the college’s/schools’ and the departments' objectives and to promote balance among teaching, service, and scholarship. To request reassignment, members of the faculty must submit reassigned-time proposal forms to their department chairs in the fall. Department chairs will recommend appropriate requests for approval by the deans. Faculty members should reflect in their Unit I reports the enhanced work supported by the reassigned-time award. 
  • Deadlines and decision dates: Number of reassigned-time grants is calculated annually and depends on the number of a  department's full-time, ongoing faculty.
    • Faculty submit reassigned-time request form to department chairs: mid-September
    • Department chairs meet with Dean to review requests: during October
    • Reassigned-time requests approved: November 1
  • Additional Information and application: Contact dean of the appropriate school or college.

Faculty Reassigned Time (from Deans)

  • Deadlines and decision dates: On an ad-hoc basis. There is no formal application process or timeline
  • Additional information and application: Contact dean of the appropriate School or College

Faculty Research & Development Sabbaticals

  • Funding Group: Faculty Research & Development Committee
  • Eligible to apply: Full-time faculty who meet handbook specifications for rank and years of service (see Section II-7 of Faculty Handbook)
  • Scope of funding: Faculty are encouraged to apply for sabbatical leaves if they are conducting extensive research or engaged in a significant amount of additional study that will result in the recipient's professional development. Faculty may apply for a full-year/full-pay sabbatical, a leave of one–half of a full year's teaching load at full salary, or for a leave of a full academic year at half salary.
  • Deadlines and decision dates: Application deadline for full-year/full-pay sabbatical is October 1. Application deadline for other sabbatical types is October 17.

Although applicants may apply for up to two course reassignments, the typical reassignment is for one course per year. No monetary award is associated with this type of fellowship, except for the continuance of full pay at current levels with reduced teaching responsibilities.

New Faculty Teaching Sabbatical

  • Funding Group: Provost's Office (Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs) and Department (through Reassigned-Time Allocations)
  • Eligible to apply: Probationary continuing- and tenure-track faculty who have completed at least their first probationary year but who have not yet reached the year in which they submit their file for continuance or promotion/tenure.
  • Scope of funding: Allows for a faculty member to have one fall or spring semester with no teaching responsibilities (zero course load), allowing her/him to focus on scholarship. Sample annual teaching loads would be 0-1-3 or 3-1-0. The teaching sabbatical is available by combining one departmental reassigned-time with one reassigned-time through the Provost's Office. Faculty and department chairs should work closely to best meet departmental and faculty development needs.
  • Deadlines and decision dates: Awards are not granted on a competitive basis. However, eligible faculty should submit to their Dean and the Provost's Office (Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs) a plan for their scholarship. Follow the schedule for deadlines listed under "Faculty Reassigned Time" (By Departments, Through Deans' Offices) outlined above. A final report of teaching sabbatical research progress is due in the Provost's Office (Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs) by October 15 of the year after the teaching sabbatical is taken.
