University of Nebraska to offer early retirement incentives to faculty

The University of Nebraska at Lincoln announced it is offering early retirement incentives to tenured faculty members age 62 and older.

The offer of a one-time, lump-sum payment of 90 percent of a professor’s annual salary will go to about 250 professors with at least 10 years’ experience at the university, or about 30 percent of the university’s tenured faculty members.

In a news release, Chancellor Harvey Perlman said the move will allow the university to hire the next generation of faculty.
