Ohio University releases additional details about 2022 voluntary separation or retirement program for Athens campus faculty

As announced last month, Ohio University will offer a voluntary separation or retirement program (VSRP) for eligible Athens campus faculty.  

The plan, which was created for operational and budgetary efficiencies, will be offered to full-time, tenure-track (probationary and tenured) faculty members and administrative staff with the academic rank of tenured professor or tenured associate professor in strategically defined academic programs.  

University Human Resources will send notice via email to eligible employees on Monday, November 1, 2021.  

Eligible individuals may indicate their interest to participate in the VSRP on or after January 15, 2022. To receive the cash incentives associated with the plan, eligible faculty must declare their intention to participate on or before March 7, 2022, and return all necessary forms and paperwork as required by that date.  

Participants in the program must separate service or retire on one of the four official exit dates of May 15, 2022, June 30, 2022, August 15, 2022, or December 31, 2022.  

General questions can be directed to Human Resources – Benefits Staff at benefits@ohio.edu(opens in a new window).  While each individual's situation is different, anyone considering participating in this voluntary opportunity is advised to get all the information possible before making a decision.
