Leave of Absence

All faculty who will be absent for more than 15 workdays must complete an Extended Leave of Absence Request Form which must be approved by the Department Chair, then forwarded to Administrative Affairs for Dean and Sr. Vice President’s approvals. If the request is for a tenure accruing faculty member, the request form must indicate whether a request to extend the tenure probationary period will be requested. If the answer is “yes”, then a letter addressed to the Senior Vice President for Health Affairs should indicate why the leave of absence is requested as well as justification for the extension of the probationary period. All leave of absence requests should follow current UF guidelines.
