Tenured faculty are eligible for sabbatical leave after six years of service at NYU. A sabbatical may be taken as one year at 3/4 pay or one semester at full pay. Subsequently, faculty are eligible for a one semester sabbatical at 3/4 pay following six semesters of service. If the six semesters of service are "banked" in order to accrue twelve semesters of service, a faculty member then becomes eligible again for one academic year at 3/4 pay or one semester at full pay. As with all leaves, the timing of the sabbatical must be approved by the relevant department chair.
Faculty anticipating leave should be aware that the Office of the Provost has developed an initiative designed to meet the interests of faculty on sabbatical leave who are interested in spending time abroad. Research centers have been established at NYU Berlin, NYU London, NYU Florence, NYU Paris, NYU Prague, NYU Shanghai, NYU Washington DC, and GRI Tel Aviv. NYU faculty and graduate students who are on leave or have extramural funding and wish to have NYU infrastructural support while spending time abroad may spend up to two semesters at one or a combination of these sites.

The Arts and Science Policies and Procedures web site describes policies and procedures for several important processes, including assessment of faculty, third year reviews, promotion and tenure, and applying for leaves. These procedures are consistent with and complementary to University policies and procedures found in the NYU Faculty Handbook and elsewhere.
The Faculty Research Fund is an annual allocation that may be made to individual faculty members to support their research and scholarship. Only the Dean of the Faculty, or the Dean of the College or Graduate School, or a Divisional Dean may authorize a Faculty Research Fund.
