A full-time (tenured, tenure-track and annual contract) faculty member may request a lateral transfer on professional or academic grounds to another campus to fill an existing vacancy in the receiving division. Transfers are considered in light of existing student demand, program needs and respective campus needs.
If you’re seeking a transfer, start the process by providing written notification of your request to your current dean and campus/vice president or submit the transfer request to your campus director of organizational development and human resources. Faculty transfer requests received by the campus director of organizational development human resources will be forwarded to the current dean and campus president normally within three business days. Submit your request to transfer by the last day of February, though extensions may be granted for special circumstances.
The current dean and campus/vice president will meet with you to determine the feasibility and reasonableness of your request and will then approve or disapprove.
If the transfer request is approved by your current dean and campus/vice president for further review, you should then submit a letter of request and curriculum vitae to the prospective receiving dean and campus president outlining the reasons for your request, professional teaching experience and projected contributions to the receiving division including areas of teaching expertise, service to the College and professional development interests.
The prospective receiving dean and campus/vice president will then meet with you, review performance artifacts, gather relevant feedback from the campus community and then approve or disapprove the transfer. You may withdraw your request after meeting with the prospective receiving dean and campus president.
If approved, you would relocate to the receiving campus at the beginning of the semester mutually agreed upon by the sending and receiving academic divisions.
Human resources will then document the appropriate action in the personnel system and reassign the position vacancy to the sending campus.
If you have any questions about faculty-related transfers, contact your campus director of organizational development and human resources.
