remuneration from some other organization, agency, institution, or person, the salary paid
by the College shall be reduced accordingly; provided if the sabbatical leave is for one
academic year, no reduction in salary shall be made unless the total of the regular salary

not derived from work performed during the period of the sabbatical leave.
