Requests for Replacements and Additional Courses
Request Form: Due November 3
Bates considers the curricular needs of our students its top priority. It also supports the scholarly pursuits of faculty through sabbaticals, other leaves, and course reductions. (See faculty Leave Programs and Support at http://www.bates.edu/dof/faculty-scholarship/.) Through the dean of the faculty and division chairs, the College makes an effort to replace faculty taking leave and course reductions for purposes of scholarship and pedagogy and to add courses in cases of extraordinary curricular need. The dean and division chairs give priority to faculty away for a full academic year but consider semester-long replacements and additional courses when need is demonstrated and funds are available.
To request replacement courses for faculty applying for leave or additional courses for your department or program, please complete the form below by November 3 and click the “Submit” button. If you have questions, please contact Shareen Gustin Thompson at email@example.com.
