Updates: This post was updated on June 20 at 12:26 p.m. to correct the list. An earlier version had the 'W' section alphabetized by first name, rather than last name.

This post was updated on July 20 at 12:09 p.m. to reflect that the original post was correct regarding Ray's acceptance of the retirement program. The update at 10:05 p.m. is incorrect, according to Ray.

This post was updated at 10:05 a.m. on June 20 to clarify that those who have opted into the program are not necessarily retiring at this time, and they have the choice to back out of it until their retirement date. Dean David Ray who opted-in to the program is not retiring, per Associate Professor of American Studies Julia Ehrhardt.
