“The mission of the Emeriti Association is to celebrate the role of retired faculty for their many years of service to higher education, to their students, and to the University of Cincinnati; to provide a forum for the special concerns and interests of its members; and to extend their association with distinguished friends and colleagues, with the University, its programs, and its future.”

Announcements

*Special Announcement from Dean Xuemao Wang*

Dear UC Faculty Emeriti,

 While no one graduates from a library, no one graduates without it! With a bold, new strategic plan, the UC Libraries is committed to empower discovery, stimulate learning and inspire the creation of knowledge. Access to dynamic data, information and resources enables our students and faculty to achieve their personal and professional goals. 

 Please consider continuing your investment in our students by supporting the UC Libraries with a gift of $100 or more. You can make your gift through our secure website at www.giveto.uc.edu or the UC Libraries giving webpage. Should you have any questions, please contact Christa Flueck at the UC Foundation. She may be reached at 513-556-0055 or via e-mail at christa.flueck@uc.edu. Thank you!

Current Activities

The Board met 11 times in 2014, established five standing committees, and accomplished the following activities:

  • Successfully held the First Annual Recognition and Appreciation Dinner for new Emeriti in May, and arranged the Second such Dinner to be held May 14, 2015. Both the President and the Provost are planning to attend; the Provost and the UC Foundation provide the funding for this important event.
  • Successfully held the First Annual Bus Tour of the city for new Faculty in August, and arranged the Second such tour to be held either in late August, or early September, 2015. Jim Tarbell will again lead this well received tour as he did in 2014. (Thanks to David Lee Smith and Bruce Goetzman as co-chairs)
  • Successfully held the First Annual Party Bridge Benefit for Scholarships with the UC Woman’s Club, and arranged for the Second such event (see below, and with thanks to Peter Suranyi and Darlene Anderson as co-chairs)
  • Continued to work with Faculty Senate and the Provost office to establish a uniform policy university-wide for approving Emeritus status (thanks to our FS representative Bob Faaborg)
  • Accepted the first student in the Undergraduate Mentorship Awards program (thanks to Gene Lewis as Chair). The winning student is Sarah Carpenter, who is a senior majoring in Professional Writing
  •  Formalized a Transitions to Retirement Committee headed by Henry Fenichel. Sarah will work this coming semester with this committee, Susan Ratto in HR, Wayne Hall, and me to create a formal document on the process and procedures involved in faculty retirement. In the ideal, this will be available on the web to all faculty interested in retirement, and will both expedite and ease the transition to retirement.
  • Initiated the collection of data on Emeriti Activities to better understand the extent of involvement of Emeriti in university endeavors (thanks to Breda LeMaster and Barb Macke)
  • Began formal collaboration with the UC Faculty Club and UC Woman’s Club for providing the Luncheon Speaker Series
  • Conducted a series of four Speaker Series Luncheons on Financial Literacy for Faculty, in conjunction with the UC Foundation (thanks to Jeff Dundon at UCF). A committee is being developed to further pursue this important topic for active faculty as well as Emeriti.rning.
