The URI Honorary Degree Committee will be seeking names of individuals who have distinguished themselves through important contributions to the University, to the State of Rhode Island, or to the nation – individuals who deserve to be honored by the University and who will bring honor to the University by accepting a URI degree.
Phased Retirement Option
Given the continued interest by the University faculty, I am writing with regard to a phased retirement option for FY2015 through FY2018. This option recognizes that the University is an integral part of faculty lives and, as such, provides a respectful transition for faculty from full-time responsibilities to retirement. This option consists of a two-year phased retirement assignment. Faculty interested in the phased retirement option should read the information below and submit a proposal to the Dean of the College by April 14, 2014 for the 2014-2015 academic year. Please refer to section D3 of the policy for Academic Years FY16 through FY18.
