Dear Dr. Rosen,

Please accept this letter as official notice of my resignation from my position in the Department of History at Company Name. My final day of employment will be on June 7, 2015. I will be moving on to chair the History Department of a nearby university.

This upward move is one that will benefit my career growth and allow me to utilize both my administrative and teaching skills. I have gained so much through my time here at Company Name, and I thank you for the opportunity to touch the lives of the students who have walked through the door of my classroom. I will sorely miss those students and my colleagues here in the department.

I am determined to ensure that my departure is as smooth and seamless as it can be. I will be sure to wrap up any final projects, turn in my grades and clean out my office prior to leaving. I’m happy to serve on the search committee for my replacement, as well. Please Don’t hesitate to reach out with requests or questions by phone at 000-000-0000.
