LANGSTON - A pilot program designed to keep Oklahoma State University faculty members in the classroom longer is being extended.
The OSU A&M board of regents approved an extension to the phased retirement program Friday at the board's meeting at Langston University.
The board approved the pilot program at its February meeting. The plan allows OSU faculty members to retire with full benefits and return to work half-time after a 60-day waiting period.
At the time, OSU officials said the program would allow faculty members to continue to perform some duties while leaving others. For example, a professor could continue to do research while retiring from his or her teaching duties.
