Washburn University Board of Regents
SUBJECT: Voluntary Phased Retirement
In January, 1999 the Board of Regents approved a voluntary phased retirement for Art Johnson, Director of Physical Plant that was to begin July 1, 1999. A search for that position was begun but later suspended when VPAT, John Moore, left Washburn. That search will be reactivated when it is appropriate for the new VPAT to participate in the process.
Mr. Johnson has agreed to delay his voluntary phased retirement, and remain the Physical Plant Director, so as to provide consistent leadership in the Physical Plant through this transitional time.
This action is to amend the starting date of Mr. Johnson's phased retirement plan. All other provisions of the agreement remain as previously approved.
President Farley recommends Board of Regents' approve the delay of the starting date for Art Johnson's phased retirement to an appropriate date not later than December 31, 1999.
