Return of the START Program
START is back for another year. The Staff and Academic Reduction in Time Program was renewed until June 30, 2006, so employees who were on START can extend their contracts, if approved by their supervisors. A new START contract—forms UBEN260 for June and U270 for July—is required to extend the employee’s participation. No new participants are being enrolled. Call Carol Houchens (x2869) in Human Resources with any questions.
