Lateral Transfers

A lateral transfer is the movement of an employee from one job assignment to another within his/her job classification into another unit or department within the University.

To initiate a lateral transfer within a CWA title, the employee must express a desire to transfer in writing and submit an updated resume to the office of Human Resources. When the title becomes vacant in another department or unit, Human Resources will notify the interested employee of opportunity. More detailed information about the transfer process can be found in applicable contracts.
