President of UOR to RETIRE!!!!

So the President of University of the Rockies is going to Retire! or at least that is the public story. My guess is that because the school has been struggling to get new students that there could be an underlying reason for the sudden retirement.

Back in September 2012 Ashford University announced roughly 500 cuts - has this ever materialized?


(Fri 09/28/12 04:41:50 UTC)

The Cal Warn Act is not applicable in this case. It only applies to employees who have been with the company 181 days or more. It appears that the severance is your best option.
