Faculty Retirement Planning Program

Based on positive feedback regarding the Faculty Retirement Planning Program, I have decided to extend the program for an additional three years. For the current academic year, faculty wishing to take advantage of the program should notify their dean by January 31, 2020, of their intent to retire in either May 2021 or May 2022. With the three-year extension, faculty considering retirement at a later date may choose to take advantage of Plan B or Plan C to retire in May 2022, May 2023, May 2024, or May 2025. Additional guidance, as well as the program document, may be found on H.R.'s website.
