Fox 11 reports on buyout program

Reporter Gabrielle Mays of Fox 11 News came to UW-Green Bay Friday to talk to University employees about a newly announced voluntary-separation program for faculty and staff who are 55 or older. Mays talked to David Kieper of CIT, a 36-year employee, and to Director of Human Resources Sheryl Van Gruensven. Kieper indicated he’s open to considering the offer, but he also expressed concern about the University potentially losing so much institutional knowledge and experience all at once. Van Gruensven noted that not everyone who applies for the program will be accepted.
