If granted Sabbatical Leave, I agree to abide by the terms of Valencia’s Sabbatical Leave Policy, and within four months following completion of the sabbatical leave, submit a report summarizing the benefits and/or achievements resulting from the Sabbatical Leave.
I understand that any travel conducted while on Sabbatical is at my own risk. I understand that while employee health insurance benefits may continue while I am conducting research, study or work internationally, Valencia College shall not be responsible for the payment of emergency expenses incurred should I experience illness, accident, or injury during the period of Sabbatical Leave. If my leave includes travel, it is recommended that I purchase additional medical/trip insurance at my own expense, to cover unanticipated travel issues.
