Iowa's public universities asking to give professors more time off

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

 

Iowa's public universities want more professors to have time off to work on research projects.

This comes after three years of cutbacks.

The Iowa Board of Regents will be asked to approve of 111 sabbaticals for professors beginning next July.

Iowa's universities reduced sabbaticals the last few years because of political pressure and budget cuts.

Universities hope the time off allows professors to visit research sites, write books, and publish articles.
