Faculty and Staff Departures should all complete a CWRU Personnel Action Form and send via email to cashradmin@case.edu with a letter of resignation as soon as the departure is confirmed.

Departing Faculty should then complete the process below to ensure that

  • Information needed for a smooth departure is available to all parties
  • Financial responsibility is identified and planned for
  • Appropriate grants are transferred to the new institution in a timely manner


Part 1

Complete and submit the FDP Title Page & Faculty Checklist Worksheet to cashradmin@case.edu.

  • This checklist identifies the faculty member’s responsibilities regarding human resources, research conduct and administration, animal care and concerns, data storage and transfer, etc.
  • Not all areas of the FDP Faculty Checklist Worksheet will be appropriate for all faculty. By first completing the FDP Faculty Checklist Worksheet faculty members and DAs will know which areas and Appendix documents pertain to individual faculty.

Part 2

Faculty member and department administration work with relevant college and university offices to complete the relevant FDP Appendix documents (linked below). Completed Appendix documents are returned to cashradmin@case.edu once all signatures are obtained.

  • Completion of these documents will assist to close out and wrap up any outstanding faculty responsibilities prior to their departure date, which severs their relationship with the university and the college.
