Many on Faculty, Staff Opt for Early Leaves

President John Davitt is not the only one looking forward to retirement this summer. Across campus, at least 57 others from academia, management and the classified staff have either preceded him or will follow him in retirement.

In honor of retirees, a reception will be held at 4 p.m. June 2 in the Auditorium.

Although it is tempting to credit Davitt’s absence with the sudden departure of so many of GCC’s employees, it is probably the retirement incentive now offered by human resources that is responsible.

The main beneficiaries of the incentive are employees who are between 55 and 65 years of age and have served for nine years or more.

Most of the positions vacated by retirees will be filled with new personnel, although some will be lost to attrition.

Many familiar faces will be leaving during the summer intersesions, and many new ones will be joining the staff in the fall.

Staff members who are interested in taking advantage of the incentive, should call Valicia contact Dantzler of Human Resources at ext. 5174.
