Becoming Emeritus/a: The Process

Navigating the transition to retirement and emeritus/a status is not always easy. If you know a faculty member who is thinking about retiring, then these webpages  may be of interest:

  1. The Retirement Checklist. Includes a checklist of twelve things that the chair and the  candidate should talk about.
  2. The Process for Becoming Emeritus/a.  Includes a list of simple instructions that need to be followed at the department and college levels.
  3. Perks and Opportunities for Retired and Emeritus/a Faculty. A handy list of fringe benefits.

The goal here is to reduce the angst and mystery that is sometimes associated with the faculty retirement process.

Contact me directly or  Cindy Robinson in the CAPE Office if you have any questions or need advice about a complicated situation.

Thanks!
