Purpose

Under the Board of Regents Policy Manual, Georgia Southern University grants leave with pay for the purposes of promoting scholarly work, enhancing teaching, and encouraging professional development. Educational leave is awarded to highly productive members of the faculty who demonstrate academic excellence.

Educational leave will be commensurate with the faculty member’s current appointment. For an individual on an academic year contract, leave may be for both fall and spring semesters at half-salary, or either fall or spring semester at full-salary. For an individual on an annual contract, leave may be for 12 months at half-salary or 6 months at full-salary.

A faculty member granted educational leave must return to Georgia Southern University for one academic year, if on an academic year contract, or one calendar year, if on an annual contract, immediately following the period of educational leave.
