(Oct. 6, 2011) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio today announced details of the Voluntary Separation Incentive Program (VSIP) for faculty.

The program provides an incentive for faculty who choose to voluntarily separate from UTSA. Participating eligible faculty will receive a single lump-sum payment equal to their nine-month faculty base salary.

"The Voluntary Separation Incentive Program will allow the university to explore options for managing resources in strategic areas and may afford some opportunity for modest faculty expansion," said John H. Frederick, UTSA provost and vice president for academic affairs. "At the same time, we are able to offer some of our long-serving faculty a benefit that we never have offered before."

The VSIP is open to full-time, tenured faculty who have been continuously employed at the UTSA for at least 10 years and who meet the rule of 80 (age plus years of service with a Texas state agency equal to or greater than 80). Read the additional eligibility requirements and full details on the UTSA Voluntary Separation Incentive Program website.

Approximately 120 faculty members at UTSA meet the VSIP eligibility requirements. Customized information packets will be delivered via U.S. mail and UTSA email to those faculty members next week. The Office of Human Resources will conduct information sessions for eligible faculty beginning Oct. 21.

The enrollment period for faculty who choose to participate in the program will be Jan. 2-10, 2012. The official resignation date for faculty who enroll in the VSIP is Aug. 31, 2012.

Any faculty member who believes they should be eligible for the program but does not receive a packet by mid-October should contact Annette Rabago and Barbara Centeno in the Office of Human Resources.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
