The Office of International Programs cordially invites faculty applications for the fall 2006 and spring 2007 semesters of the London sabbatic program. Applicants should be eligible for an approved funded sabbatic from their school or division covering either the fall 2006 or spring 2007 semester. The selected faculty members are expected to teach one course complementary to the London Center curriculum, interact with London Center instructors and students, and attend London Center faculty meetings.
In exchange for teaching one course (a UK work permit will be required) appropriate to the Ithaca College London Center experience, the selected faculty members will receive one roundtrip economy airline ticket to London from the nearest major airport, the use of the Collegeís three-bedroom house in Collierís Wood for one semester, and access to London Center facilities. Family members may accompany the faculty member at the faculty memberís expense.
The house in Collierís Wood is a 2- to 3-minute walk from the Collierís Wood tube (subway) station (in zone 3 on the Northern Line), and near to major shopping and schools. On average, a tube ride from Collierís Wood to the Gloucester Road tube stop for the Ithaca College London Center is 30 to 40 minutes. The house is furnished and includes a washing machine, computer, and other amenities. Keep in mind, however, that the 3rd bedroom is very small (the size of a closet) and only large enough for a small crib (the room has a small window). The selected faculty member will need to provide a damage deposit to the College before moving into the house.
Interested faculty eligible for sabbatic during the fall 2006 or the spring 2007 semester should provide a letter of application, a one-page C.V., evidence of teaching excellence, and an outline of the course proposed for the London Center.
Please submit your application packet to Tanya R. Saunders, assistant provost and dean of interdisciplinary and international dtudies, 307 Job Hall, by Friday, January 20th, 2006. The selected faculty members (one for each semester) will need a letter indicating school support for an approved dabbatic during fall 2006 or spring 2007. Before spring break 2006, we hope to announce the names of the faculty members selected.
