Leave of absence without pay may be granted upon recommendation of the departmental chair and approval by the dean of the school and the Provost when leave is needed for advanced study, professional experience, or travel combined with directed and planned study or to meet statutory requirements.

Recommendations for leave should normally be for a maximum of one year and inherent in any such recommendations is the assumption that the individuals intend to return to Clarkson for at least one year, and that there are vacancies being held open for them.
