UBC is setting up a comfortable lounge on the ground floor of the Alumni Centre as a space for Professors Emeriti to congregate during the whole week of Congress. Coffee will be served every day at 10:00. Come and join other retired faculty members in this lovely social space.
Note also the “Extending the Academic Lifespan: Staying Connected after Retirement” session at Career Corner on June 4 from 8:30 to 10:00. A panel will discuss retirement as a time of new possibilities. It will also address the apprehension of many college and university teachers and researchers who enter retirement with little or no preparation or support by their institution. They will ask, does retirement close doors—or open them?
