VSP 2021

Voluntary Separation Program (VSP) 2021

In response to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to the campus, UC Berkeley is offering a second round of the VSP 2021 as an option for eligible employees to assist with the overall campus budget predicament. 

To support UCB’s effort to make strategic staffing changes, we are asking managers and leaders to look critically at their organization and consider vacating positions that no longer meet their operational needs. This program offers staff employees who are considering ending their employment with the University an opportunity to volunteer to be considered for separation on 5/15/2021 under this VSP 2021.
