The objective of sabbatical leave is as stated in the AUS Faculty Handbook: "The release from normally assigned duties is granted with the expectation that faculty members will utilize their leave for scholarly endeavors of an academic, artistic or professional nature. These activities should enhance their careers and their ability to contribute to the work of the University."
