When the economy nosedived in the fall of 2008, many colleges created or enhanced retirement incentives, seeing them as one strategy to deal with a rapidly changing fiscal environment. Now, with the downturn approaching its third anniversary, many colleges are looking at their second or third rounds of retirement incentives and evaluating the success of previous efforts.
On Wednesday, June 22 at 1 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed presents Retirement Incentives and Higher Ed, a one-hour audio conference featuring Valerie Martin Conley, an Ohio University faculty member who is a leading expert in the field. Professor Conley will explore the current issues facing colleges and the academic employees who might consider retirement with the right incentives.
The program is ideal for human resources, academic affairs, finance and administration, and legal affairs officers as well as deans and department heads. Click here to register or for more information about this low-cost audio conference.
