Strategic Reallocation Program

The Voluntary Buyout Program (VBP) has been established, effective April 22, 2014, to assist the University in addressing budgetary constraints due to declining state appropriations and potential budget reductions in the forthcoming fiscal years. The strategies outlined in this program have been developed to provide the University with the flexibility to reinvest in programs and services deemed essential for the achievement of a preferred future.
