I am taking this means of informing all interested faculty members of the dates which have been established for submitting applications for sabbatical leaves for the academic year 19 72-73.
Sabbatical leave application forms are available in the President's office and may be pickedp in person or requested by phone from Mrs. Virginia Rumble,the President's secretary, extension 3311. Completed applications must be filed no later than 5:00p.m. on November19, 1971.
Sabbatical leave applications will be reviewed by the Research and Creative Activities Committee. I am asking the committee to make its recommendations no later than December 8, 1971. The announcement of decisions will be made as soon as feasible, probably within a month after the receipt of the recommendations.
It should be noted that the precise number of sabbatical leaves which can be authorized and funded will depend upon the1972-7 3 budget allocation. Although the allocation to Humboldt State College may not be known until mid-summer,1972, we hope that an earlier indication will be available by February, 1972. We regret that it is not possible, based on prior experience,to make commitments which can be reliedupon with finality. Pertinent information about the status of probable allocations in the1972-73 budget will be communicated to the faculty as soon as it becomes available to the college.
