31 take advantage of voluntary separation program

Burggren_Warren_006.jpgThe UNT Provost’s office has notified 31 individuals that their applications for voluntary separation from UNT have been accepted.

These individuals, which include faculty members and librarians, will terminate employment with UNT on or before Aug. 31, 2011 and the university will pay them a lump sum equal to one year’s salary on or before Sept. 15, 2011 in accordance with the program agreement.

These separations will release approximately $2.9 million in salary costs and 32 positions.  Because these individuals had a commitment of continued employment, they would have received these salaries during the 2011-12 academic year, which begins Sept. 1, 2011. The additional cost associated with this program is approximately $840,000 during the 2011-12 academic year, which will be used to provide critical activities such as teaching.

Searches for new faculty will begin as the Provost’s office, with the input of deans, determines what areas need additional faculty to support the university’s goal of growing as a major research university that provides the best undergraduate education in Texas.

“This program, which was in many ways an experiment to see if there were any individuals who may want to leave and release their salary to the university for investment in its future, was a tremendous success,” says Provost Warren Burggren, right, who offered the limited voluntary separation program to faculty beginning March 8. All applications for the program were due by 5 p.m. April 22. 

In total, 35 individuals applied for the program; three revoked their applications and one was not eligible.
