Faculty Development Leave

Faculty development leaves at UNT are authorized for the general purpose of increasing the value of the recipients’ sustained contribution to the University.  They provide the individual with an opportunity for professional growth and may be granted (upon application) for study, research, writing, field observations, or other suitable purposes.  UNT Policy 06.010: Faculty Development Leave Policy and Guidelines outlines the three classes of leave, eligibility, procedures and authorizations, and leave period and compensation.  Applicants must initiate the request for faculty development leave with the chair of the department who forwards the request to the dean of the faculty member’s academic unit for endorsement.  The call, application and required forms for faculty development leave can be found on the Faculty Success website.
