Faculty program focuses on sabbaticals
Citadel faculty members who have had recent sabbaticals or received Fulbright Scholarships will be leading a session this Thursday, Oct. 13 to help other faculty members take advantage of sabbatical and Fulbright opportunities. The session, sponsored by the faculty sabbatical committee, will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the Riverview Room.
The session is open to all faculty but pre-registration for the luncheon is required.
Prior to the luncheon, Mark McKinney, chair of the sabbaticals committee, will present a session beginning at 11 a.m. on completing sabbatical applications.
The program will feature presentations by modern language professor Wangbai Bahk and business professor Donald Sparks on their Fulbright scholarships and studies abroad. In addition, faculty members Mei-Qin Chen of the math and computer science department, Larry Moreland of the department of political science and criminal justice and Lisa Zuraw of the chemistry department will have displays on their recent sabbatical studies.
Sabbatical leaves are designed to give faculty members time for further professional development through research, private study, travel, writing, etc. The awards are made through a competitive process and normally allow for a one-semester leave at full pay. More information about sabbaticals is available on the committee’s website.
