Dear Dean Folson,
I write this letter to inform you that, as we have previously discussed, I will be resigning from my position as Associate Professor of Sociology with Company Name, at the end of the fall semester. My husband has been offered an academic position at a college in Maine, and I will be relocating with him to join the faculty at a nearby community college. Please consider this my formal resignation letter.
I look forward to the opportunities that await me, both professionally and personally; however, I will truly miss the amazing colleagues I have been fortunate to know here, as well as the students. I am honored to have received the opportunity to grow and learn amid such talent and brilliance.
I appreciate the support you have offered me over the years and the encouragement you give me during this time of transition. Thank you so much for your assistance and attention to this matter. I wish you and my colleagues the best of success and hope that we will remain in touch.
