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.
