FY 2020 Voluntary Retirement or Resignation Program

Gallaudet University is pleased to offer the Voluntary Retirement or Resignation Program ("Program") to all employees. This is open to regular-status employees (both full-time and part-time). The Program provides certain eligible employees with an incentive to participate. It is important to note that employees must apply to participate in the program and not all applications will be approved. 

In general, certain staff must retire or resign on August 31, 2020 or December 31, 2020 and certain staff, faculty and teachers must retire or resign on December 31, 2020. Applicants will be notified on July 31, 2020 whether their applications are approved.

Gallaudet is offering the Program to create budget flexibility to manage our response to the financial impact associated with COVID-19, which has dramatically changed our students’ learning experience and how we work. The Program is intended to generate options for those of you who may be considering a life or career change.

Employees must review all documents below to fully understand the incentive program. An appointment with Human Resources is encouraged to get a better understanding of the Program. However, to apply for retirement, an appointment with Human Resources is required. Human Resources can be reached at vrrp@gallaudet.edu
