Retirement age could change for some IU officials

BLOOMINGTON -

Indiana University would allow many high-ranking administrators to work past the current retirement age of 65 under a proposal being considered by the school's trustees.

A Board of Trustees committee voted unanimously Thursday to endorse raising the retirement age to 67 for the university president along with vice presidents and deans at the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses.

University counsel Jacqueline Simmons tells The Herald-Times that the change recognizes that many people want to and are capable of working past 65.

The full Board of Trustees is expected to vote on the change during a meeting Friday at IU's Kokomo campus.

A similar retirement policy at Purdue University forced the Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne chancellor to step down this summer after turning 65.
