4.21 / Procedures for Departing Faculty

Resignations should always be submitted in writing to the faculty member's department chairperson or dean. The letter of resignation will be forwarded through the dean to the Provost and Senior Vice President, who will acknowledge the resignation on behalf of the University. Unless an alternate date is specified, the effective date of a resignation shall be the termination date of the faculty member's appointment, current as of the date of submission of the resignation.

Final Departure:
Prior to final departure from campus, faculty members are expected to make arrangements for determining the final grades of their students and to follow the procedures described in the following:

1.  Faculty members must submit an appropriate written advisory of their departure to their budget officers. Resignations should be submitted by May 1 or within 30 days after appointment notices are mailed.

2.  The budget officer fills out a Change of Status Form and forwards the form to the budget review officer. (No position may be advertised until this form is completed and Affirmative Action procedures have been followed.)

3.  The faculty member should schedule an exit interview with the Office of Human Resources.
