Faculty Separation & Resignation

The University and faculty subscribe to the AAUP Statement on Recruitment and Resignation of Faculty Members (April, 1961).

In order to permit adequate time for faculty to review programs in their departments and decide on priorities, to prepare vacancy announcements, to recruit affirmatively, to evaluate applicants, and to recommend appointments--faculty who intend to retire or resign should notify the University President at least five months prior to the end of the academic term which will conclude their active service; e.g., those faculty whose active service will conclude with spring commencement should give notice no later than mid-January prior. (Humboldt Faculty Handbook, Section 512, Resignation of Faculty Members)
