Voluntary Separation Offer (VSO) Program

VSO Program Updates

In response to various requests from interested eligible faculty, OHR is pleased to announce the following benefits and privileges available to approved faculty members separating under the VSO Program.

We are pleased to announce that faculty members who are approved for the Voluntary Separation Offer will be eligible to continue to receive various University benefits. Additionally, faculty who are approved as emeritus faculty will be eligible to receive the benefits enumerated in the Emeritus Professor Policy.

Following their June 30, 2018 separation, faculty members approved for the VSO will be issued a new NSU Shark Card (ID Card) with the title of “Faculty-Retired”. This new SharkCard will allow these faculty members to access:

  • Current parking privileges
  • A new NSU email account and address
  • RecPlex membership 
    • Those interested in either retaining or obtaining membership in the RecPlex should contact Tom Vitucci at ext. 27304 or for further information. 
  • Alvin Sherman Library including circulation privileges currently provided to faculty members (e.g. six months check out time and no fines)
    • Databases can be accessed by utilizing computers in the Alvin Sherman Library (ALS). Emeritus Faculty will have remote access to ALS databases. Anyone with status of adjunct faculty also will be able to access databases remotely.
  • Eligibility for Faculty Club membership

The availability of office space at your College is subject to the Dean’s discretion and subject to facility utilization requirements and the College custom and practice of designating office space for current faculty and staff.

There may be other opportunities for the faculty member to remain engaged with the College following separation such as an adjunct faculty member or mentor. We encourage you to reach out to your Dean to initiate those discussions so that the Dean is aware of your interest.
