“Trends in Managing Faculty Retirements in a Turbulent Economy”

December 2, 2011, 2:30-4:00 p.m. (EST)

December 2011 |

For colleges and universities, faculty retirement is a delicate but critical issue as leaders focus on institutional productivity while simultaneously respecting the needs and wishes of some of their most accomplished faculty members.

Financial considerations, especially exacerbated in the current economy, will keep some faculty from retiring. But personal and social considerations are major factors in the retirement decision, as well. Faculty members often remain in academe even when they have the financial resources to retire comfortably. In order to be effective, programs that encourage faculty retirement must address social as well as financial considerations.

A panel of experts will discuss the implications of new research exploring the mindset of older faculty considering retirement along with innovative strategies to address the challenge and answers questions from participants.

Moderated by Dr. Diana Cordova, Assistant Vice President of Leadership Programs, American Council on Education, this special presentation is offered through the TIAA-CREF Institute’s TIAA-CREF University, a new initiative designed to provide relevant education to senior-level decision makers in higher education and the broader charitable sector.

Featured guests include TIAA-CREF Chairman and CEO, Roger W. Ferguson, Jr. and TIAA-CREF Institute Principle Research Fellow, Paul Yakoboski, Ph.D. as well as distinguished colleagues from the University of Minnesota and ACE.
