News and Announcements

Tuition Benefits Changes to Be Detailed
As President Seligman announced in a speech to the Faculty Senate in April, the University will modify the dependent children’s tuition benefit for employees with 10 or more years of full-time service. There will be no change for employees with five to 10 years of full-time service, or for part-time staff with six years of part-time service. “We have received questions about the changes,” said Chuck Murphy, associate vice president for human resources. “The benefits staff will disseminate details in July, following the completion of the changeover to the new retirement program.”
