Summary

This paper reviews the literature on college faculty sabbatical leave and sabbatical leave programs often described as 'paid vacations' with no accountability. The literature indicates that sabbatical leave was an important part of any faculty development program. Those who took sabbatical leaves overwhelmingly reported the experience as a positive one. The literature firmly supports the contention that sabbaticals served as a mechanism for conducting research and to improve or develop teaching. However, the need for specific planning and evaluation of sabbatical leave was also indicated, as financial restraints and public awareness have brought increased scrutiny to professional development activities of this nature in higher education. Little mention was made in the literature of the effects of sabbatical leave on the service mission of higher education institutions, or of the internal benefit to institutional operations that sabbatical leave presents. (Contains 16 references.) (MDM)
