Submitted on behalf of Tanya Saunders, Assistant Provost
It is my pleasure to once again invite faculty applications for the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester of the London Sabbatical Program. Applicants should be eligible for an approved and funded sabbatical from their School covering faculty salary either for the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester. The selected faculty members are expected to teach one course complementary to the London Center curriculum (not compete with courses already offered), interact with London Center instructors and students, and attend London Center faculty meetings and gatherings. A course with an ICC designation is preferred.
In exchange for teaching one course (assuming sufficient enrollment) appropriate to the London Center experience, the selected faculty member will receive one round trip economy airline ticket to London from the nearest major airport, the use for one semester of the College’s 2.5 bedroom house in Collier’s Wood, and access to the London Center facilities. Family members may accompany the faculty member at the faculty member’s expense.
The house in Collier’s Wood is a two to three minute walk from the Collier’s Wood tube (subway) station (in zone 3 on the Northern Line) and near a major shopping center (a five to ten minute walk). A 15-minute bus ride will take you to the Wimbledon town center (shops, restaurants, theatre, and the fabled All England Club for tennis lovers). On average, a tube ride from Collier’s Wood to the Gloucester Road tube stop for the Ithaca College London Center is 40 minutes. The house is furnished and includes a washing machine, dryer, internet access, guidebooks, instructions, and a garden (yard) in the back. Please note, however, that the ‘third’ bedroom is very small (the size of a closet) and only large enough for a small crib (the room has a small window) or for use as an office. There are two sofa-beds downstairs. Each selected faculty member will need to provide a damage deposit to the College before moving into the house.
The College is not able to provide special equipment, computers, musical instruments or other amenities. Please note that K – 12 education will not be available to accompanying minors unless they are eligible under UK law. The children of previous sabbatical recipients have not been eligible. The sabbatical faculty member is invited to participate in college field trips (currently, Bath and Stratford each term) with ICLC students; any accompanying family members must pay for the cost of participation.
Interested faculty members who are eligible for sabbatical during the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester should provide a letter of application, a brief C.V., evidence or statement of teaching excellence, and an outline of the course proposed for the London Center. Indicate whether the course has an ICC designation. The selected faculty members (one for each semester) will need a letter indicating their dean’s support for an approved sabbatical during Fall 2020 or Spring 2021. By Spring Break 2020, we intend to announce the names of the two faculty members selected.
Please submit your application to Tanya Saunders, Assistant Provost, Job 203, by Friday, 13 December 2019.
