Resignation or Retirement of Faculty
Resignation or retirement notification of a faculty member should be submitted in writing to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs with a copy to the appropriate department chair, director, dean, and to the President of the University. The resignation should indicate the date on which the individual wishes employment with the Texas Woman's University to terminate. It will be assumed that a faculty member submitting a resignation which does not specify a date for termination of employment is seeking termination as of the date the resignation is submitted. On behalf of the University, the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs will acknowledge in writing receipt of the resignation.
The standard retirement date for any employee of the Texas Woman's University is May 31 or August 31 of the calendar year in which the employee expects to retire. Any exception to this policy must be forwarded through regular administrative channels.
If a benefits eligible faculty member terminates after completing the spring semester, insurance benefits will be extended through the summer months. If a faculty member is retiring in May and is eligible for retiree insurance benefits, retirement benefits will begin June 1 and active employee benefits will end May 31.
