About Us

The TIAA-CREF Institute helps those we serve make informed decisions about lifelong financial security and the business of higher education.

The Institute is an objective source of relevant research and information and provides access to a network of thought leaders, helping those we serve anticipate trends, plan future strategies and solutions and maximize opportunities for success.

As a result of the TIAA-CREF Institute's work, senior higher education leaders and others who influence individual and institutional financial decisions are better able to:

  • Design effective retirement plans and financial security strategies
  • Manage academic workforce flows
  • Evaluate retiree healthcare benefits options
  • Respond to demographic shifts and changing constituent demands
  • Identify best practices in institutional administration
