Faculty Development

The Saint Louis University College of Arts and Sciences provides a variety of professional development resources intended to support faculty in their teaching, research and service. Whether you are early-career, mid-career or late-career faculty, or adjunct/part-time faculty, the college is committed to investing in your growth and development.


The purpose of sabbatical leaves is to provide faculty members with additional professional development and renewal time. Full-time tenured faculty members may apply for sabbatical leaves of one semester at full-salary or one academic year at half-salary. To be eligible, faculty must have completed six years of full-time service since hiring or since the end of the academic year of the previous sabbatical leave. Applications for sabbaticals must be submitted by Sept. 13 for sabbatical requests for the next academic year. See the Arts and Science Faculty and Staff Policy Manual for additional details.
