One of the great pleasures of working at a university is the potential of having a sabbatical. Sabbaticals are designed such that faculty can work at other institutions to increase their knowledge in broader subject areas, perform research under unique conditions or special localities, or learn new methods and techniques. These usually only come around once every 7 years and aren’t always granted by the university. An excellent research proposal needs to be written and faculty need to show that the sabbatical will improve their ability to teach and do research at their home institution. I was lucky enough to be granted a sabbatical and fortunate enough to find funding that allowed me to work for 6 months at Lund University in Sweden.
