Individuals planning or intending to resign or retire from their current position should ensure that notice well in advance of the intended resignation or retirement date is provided to the University. Faculty members who are members of the Faculty Association should be mindful of the required notice period.
Resignation or Retirement should be made in writing to the responsible Head, Director, Dean, Associate Vice-President Continuing Studies or University Librarian indicating the following:
- effective date of resignation or retirement
- forwarding address
Please refer to the Departure Form (DOC) to ensure a smooth transition from UBC. It should be noted that any unused vacation must be taken within the period of appointment; unused vacation time is not paid out.
