“Tiffany Swenson

Administrative Coordinator

December 15, 2021

Dear Brett,

I’m writing this letter to formally announce my resignation from my role at the University of Urbandale. My last day is December 31, 2021.

I’d like to thank you for all the mentorship and guidance you’ve given me during my time here. I feel like I was able to grow as a professional and as a person in this position. While it saddens me to go, I’m happy to know that I’ve gained lifelong friends from my role. The team here is remarkable, and I’m sad to leave such an incredible group of people.

I plan to turn in my university computer, my office key and my speaker before leaving on the 31st. I have already called the financial services office about cancelling my purchasing card and am transferring recurring charges to Makenna’s card number.

I plan to come back and visit as much as I can. It truly has been a pleasure working with everyone. Please keep in touch.

Thank you again for the opportunity,

Tiffany”
