Thirty-two Kansas State University faculty members granted sabbatical leave

Submitted by Brian Niehoff

Kansas State University is granting sabbatical leave to 32 faculty members during the 2019-2020 school year.

The purpose of a sabbatical leave is to provide faculty members with the opportunity for scholarly and professional enrichment. Sabbatical leaves allow faculty to pursue advanced study, conduct research studies, engage in scholarly and creative activities, or secure appropriate industrial or professional experience. Once faculty members return from their sabbaticals, they are expected to share the knowledge and experience they gained with their students, colleagues and the Kansas State University community.
