The deadline to apply for the Voluntary Separation Incentive Program for tenured and tenure-track faculty who meet additional requirements is quickly approaching.  

As announced to campus on Aug. 6, the deadline to submit an application is Friday, Oct. 5. Faculty who are eligible for consideration are strongly encouraged to first consult with an attorney, as well as a personal financial planning professional, before submitting an application.  

Each application will be reviewed individually. The intention is to allow as many eligible faculty as possible to participate, but each approval will be granted based on the best interest of the KU community. A complete list of eligibility conditions is available at provost.ku.edu/vsip. The website also includes program information, including the application and program timeline and procedures, a list of frequently asked questions and links to resources.  

This is an important decision, and I encourage eligible faculty to consider their situation carefully. If you have questions, please contact vsip@ku.edu. We recommend that you consult with an attorney, and discuss your options with your family and a financial or tax advisor.
