University of Wyoming Trustees Approve Changes to Faculty Separation Program

by Associated Press

LARAMIE, Wyo. — The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has approved changes to a program that aims to reduce the number of faculty members in order to save money in the long run.

On Thursday, the trustees approved lifting a cap that had been on the voluntary separation program.

With the change, up to 45 UW faculty members could leave the university at the end of the current academic year. Some positions will be refilled, others will be eliminated.

A previous retirement and separation incentive resulted in the departure of about 50 employees, but fewer than 10 of them were faculty members.

The current program is targeted specifically at faculty.

UW officials expect annual net budget savings of about $4.45 million from the separation program.
