Bridge to Retirement Plan for Faculty

The Bridge to Retirement [pdf] is available to all tenured faculty members who are at least 55 years of age, and have at least 10 years of full-time College service. The plan is voluntary and is initiated by the faculty member. The plan was designed to provide one to three years at a reduced teaching load in order to prepare for full retirement.
