Kent State puts end to faculty sabbaticals

KENT, Ohio Kent State University has canceled sabbaticals for 60 faculty members in the coming school year.

University spokesman Scott Rainone says the paid leaves of absence planned for the 2009-10 school year would have cost the university $500,000 to $750,000.
