    Faculty Transition to Retirement Program (FTTRP)
    The FTTRP is a faculty voluntary transition program. Faculty members who meet the eligibility criteria set forth in the FTTRP will have an opportunity to apply to participate in the FTTRP. Participating faculty members will relinquish their tenure by way of retirement in exchange for a term contract as set forth in the FTTRP.
