My sabbatical starts on June 1st. A sabbatical is a period of time faculty are given time away from their daily work activities for a semester or two that will have the effect of improving their productivity -- in quality or quantity or both. I believe it will be a great opportunity to catch up on my writing and inventing, including developing more graduate programs and courses.
