Handling a Death Within the Campus Community

(Including retired Faculty and Staff and those on medical and other type of leave)

This site provides resources for department chairs and administrators, HR managers and liaisons, family members, faculty and staff.

When the death of an employee occurs it is imperative that the department director or chair inform the staff immediately, individually, if possible. If the information is shared 
during non-working hours, it is important to contact people at their homes so that they are not given this disturbing news as they enter the work site.
