After you have completed your Application for Sabbatical Leave and saved it to a folder on your H: drive (or another secure location), you will need to print it out and obtain the appropriate signatures. After you have obtained the required signatures,
you will need to scan the completed document (using your departmental scanner) and save the updated copy to your H: drive.
Note: If you need assistance with scanning, you can log an ihelp ticket requesting assistance.
Using Word, write your three-page Sabbatical Proposal Statement per the instructions in the Guidelines for Sabbatical Leaves. Make sure to add your abbreviated vita and, as applicable, any previous Sabbatical Leave Reports. Save these into one Word file
on your H: drive.
Please follow these instructions if you are opting to submit your supporting materials electronically. You will need to make certain that all your supporting materials are combined into a single PDF in order for them to be uploaded. If you have hard copies
of supporting materials, please scan these in using your departmental scanner and save them as a PDF on your H: drive. If you have supporting materials in the form of Word documents, please open the Word documents and click File | Export | Create
PDF/XPS Document. Select the appropriate secured file location for your new PDF and click Publish.
Once all your support materials PDFs have been saved to the same location, you will need to combine these into one PDF. In order to combine multiple PDFs, you will need to use Adobe Pro. The Adobe Pro software is available on all IUP-owned PCs.
After the files are converted to PDFs, you are ready to upload these PDF files and submit them to the Sabbatical Committee.
