Faculty Senior Associates Program

The University’s Faculty Senior Associates Program (FSAP) is a program which enables an individual to leave the full-time faculty in advance of the normal retirement age. See an eligibility overview and requesting to participate details below, or if you’re ready, explore even more resources about the program.

Overview and eligibility

The Program is based on the termination of the tenure contract rather than on retirement itself, which means it’s only available to full-time, tenured faculty members.

Full-time, tenured faculty members need to have at least ten years of service and have attained age 62 to be eligible to apply for participation in the FSAP. Participation is voluntary and must be approved by the Provost upon the recommendation of the dean of the individual’s school. A faculty member entering this Program is eligible for appointment as Emeritus upon the recommendation of the dean and approval by the Board of Trustees.

Requesting to participate

The request to participate should be made at least six months in advance of the proposed date of entry into the Program. Entry begins July 1 or January 1. The dean of the faculty member’s school must forward the request for entry into the Program to the Deputy to the Provost for approval by the Provost.

Your deans office will assist with the completion of the Data and Calculation Sheet and facilitate sign-off by appropriate parties.
