Administrative Leaves
Similar to research/study leave, the University supports the provision of administrative leave for academic staff in administrative positions to foster professional development, allow academic administrators to improve themselves academically and to engage in research. As an outcome, the University intends administrative leaves to foster their effectiveness as teachers, scholars and administrators.  Please refer to Policy: Administrative Leaves for Academic Administrators for information on eligibility for administrative leave.
