Transition to Retirement
Transition to retirement is a major life passage that affects both the faculty member and the Institution.
The OFA, in partnership with the Human Resources Departments of the UMMS and UMMMG and with the input of focused work groups have developed pre-retirement, retirement and post retirement programs, guidelines, and materials to aid both faculty and their Departments. Retired faculty are a wealth of institutional history and knowledge. Their contributions have created new knowledge and a collegial culture we all treasure. We hope our retiring faculty will choose to continue to be engaged with the institution.
Building lifelong career transition and development skills, including retirement, begins the moment our junior faculty join the institution and continues through professional endeavors after retirement.
A time to begin developing a plan for retirement.
A time for continued engagement and contribution.
