Voluntary Separation Versus Early Retirement Incentive for Staff and Faculty

Universities around the country are examining the benefits of Voluntary Separation Incentive Plans rather than the traditional Early Retirement Incentive Plan. In many cases, these programs have resulted in significant cost savings and produced additional operational and strategic benefits to the university. This interactive session will discuss the university's goals and objectives in offering the incentives and outline the key elements of the programs.
