Leaving Davidson for Retiring Faculty

This article will step you through the process of transitioning college data and any personal data you would like to retain to a personal account, prior to your retirement. We will work with you to ensure a smooth transition and remain committed to supporting you on this journey.
Retired faculty will continue to have access to their Davidson College email.  

Technology Steps to Take Before You Retire

  • Transition College Data
    • Discuss with your department chair any college data that may need to move into the department's Google Drive folder.
    • Transfer ownership of college data that your department may need to retain to a designated faculty member (i.e. Qualtrics surveys, Google Drive, OneDrive data). 
    • Work with a T&I staff member to make sure Confidential and Restricted level data (such as Social Security Numbers, passport numbers, employee/personnel records, FERPA-protected student records) are no longer accessible, such as in one’s email account or in their personal digital files.
    • Any technology products or services (such as websites, apps or other services) developed or maintained by retiring faculty should be transitioned to another responsible faculty member or department.

  • Transfer Personal Data
  • Outlook Auto Reply
    • Create an auto-reply detailing your retirement status, last day of employment, personal email address, and any other pertinent information you would like to share.

  • College-owned assets
    • Return all Davidson College-owned assets assigned to you, including but not limited to computers (desktop and/or laptop), tablets, and other technology-related devices to Technology & Innovation. 
    • If you will be retiring with emeritus or emerita status, review the computer options available to you.
    • A limited number of carrels are available for faculty use, assigned based on need and availability. A request can be made to Denise Sherrill desherrill@davidson.edu.

More information about leaving Davidson is available in section 17 of Davidson's Technology Terms of Service.
