Additional Undergraduate Faculty Information
The following sabbaticals and leaves have been granted for Academic Year 2018-2019:
- John Sheehy - one-quarter leave fall 2018/sabbatical spring 2019
- Thomas Toleno - sabbatical fall 2018
Applications for sabbatical leaves must be made in writing to the Dean of the Faculty at least one semester before the semester when the leave is to commence, and should include some description of the proposed arrangements for covering the field. Sabbatical forms are available from the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs or online. Notice of such applications shall be posted promptly, so that those affected may have a chance to state objections or make whatever arrangements may be necessary. Faculty members applying for leave should determine jointly with their colleagues and students, particularly those who are or will be on Plan, how work in their areas will be covered, with disagreements to come to the Dean of Faculty. All sabbaticals are at the discretion of the administration, and should teaching needs at the College, or other circumstances, make the granting of such a leave impossible, the faculty member with the longest period of uninterrupted active teaching shall be given priority. Notice of all leaves granted shall be posted promptly, and whenever possible by at least eight weeks before the end of the semester preceding the semester in which the sabbatical will commence.
Leaves Without Pay: After three years of service, regular faculty members may apply for leaves of absence without pay for periods of up to two years. Application for such leaves must be made to the President, who in granting such leaves will consult with the Dean of Faculty and the Committee on Faculty. This is to insure that the granting of such leave will not jeopardize the teaching program at the College. Normally, requests for such leaves must be made at least one semester before the semester during which the leave will commence.” (Marlboro College Handbook)
Please submit applications for sabbaticals and leaves, and intentions to apply for swabbaticals and leaves by October 15. Because circumstances (including coverage needs and arrangements) change, please submit a formal application even if you have previously stated your intentions. Please consult with your colleagues to coordinate planning and coverage.

Professional Development Opportunities
Marlboro provides two sources of professional development funding for faculty: summer Professional Development grants for up to $2500, and travel funds for attending conferences during the academic year. The application for summer research funds is due to the Dean of Faculty by Monday, April 15th at 4:30 p.m. and review of applications is done by the Committee on Faculty.
Applications for conference funds are due to the dean of faculty by September 30th for the entire academic year. The dean will distribute conference funds equitably and fund depending upon demand and availability of funds.
Course Development Resources
Marlboro has two sources for funds to support course development during the academic year: a central field trip budget and area-specific course development budgets. Faculty apply to the dean at the beginning of each semester for field trip funds to take their students off campus to an art exhibit, performance, lecture or similar event. While these requests are accepted on a rolling basis, priority will be given to those received by September 30th for the fall and February 15th for the spring.
A member of each area oversees area budgets, and distribution of funds is decided upon within the area. See your area representative for the guidelines for application for funding course development requests.

It is the policy of Marlboro College to support the Copyright Revision Act of 1976 by subscribing to the “Agreement on Guidelines for Classroom Copying” developed by the Ad Hoc Committee of Educational Institutions and Organizations on Copyright Law Revision, the Authors League of America, Inc., and the Association of American Publishers. (Copies available in the Library office, Bookstore, Dean of Faculty’s office, and the Plant & Operations office.)
- Single copies for personal use in teaching or research or for student use in the library (e.g. reserve shelf for course reading).
- Out of print books and periodicals or journals that are at least five years old may be reproduced for this purpose without restriction.
- Current materials may be reproduced as follows:
- a chapter from a book
- an article from a periodical or newspaper
- a short story, short essay, or short work
- a chart, graph, diagram, drawing, cartoon, or picture from a book, periodical, or newspaper
- Multiple copies for classroom use must include a notice of copyright and must not exceed one copy per student.
- Out of print books not available commercially and periodicals or journals that are at least five years old may be reproduced for this purpose without limit.
- Current materials for which publisher’s or author’s permission has been secured, may be reproduced as permitted. Publishers are usually accommodating in granting permission, and in most cases, it is granted without cost. (In some cases, however, a flat fee would be prohibitive for the small number of copies we are likely to need.)
- Current materials for which no permission has been secured can be reproduced only if they meet the following tests for brevity, spontaneity, and cumulative effect:
- Poetry generally, a poem or excerpt less than 250 words.
- Prose either a complete work of 10 pages or less, or an excerpt of not more than 4 pages or 10%, whichever is less, but in any event at least 2 pages.
- Illustration 1 chart, graph, diagram, drawing, cartoon, or picture per book or per periodical issue.
- The inspiration and decision to use the work and the moment of its use for maximum teaching effectiveness are so close in time that it would be unreasonable to expect a timely reply to a request for permission.
- The material is for a single course.
- No more than 1 complete (brief) work or two excerpts may be copied from the same author, nor more than 3 from a collective work or recent (last 5 years) periodical volume during each term.
- No more than 9 instances of such multiple copying for one course during one class term.
