Faculty have a professional obligation to provide notice of resignation at the earliest possible opportunity in order to provide for a smooth transition and to not disrupt academic or administrative operations. Resignations should normally be given at least three months prior to the separation date, which would usually become effective at the end of an academic year (e.g. May 15 or June 30). Notice of resignations should be provided to the immediate supervisor with a copy to that person's supervisor.
PAs should follow HRs Guidelines for Separating Faculty and Staff (listed below) for separating faculty. PAs should also send a copy of the faculty member's resignation letter to the Office of Faculty Recruitment and Retention.
