Returning of Personal Possessions

It is important that we return employees’ personal possessions, either to them or to their legal representatives, as soon as practicable. Often, departments are contacted directly by a legal representative, heir, or other relative seeking possession of an employee’s personal effects. In those instances, and where departments become aware that personal items have been left at the College, we ask that you notify the Office of the General Counsel and Human Resources immediately for assistance.
