DirectorMessage from the Director

As we transition from the Thanksgiving season to the Christmas season, I want to first take this opportunity to thank all of you who have made donations to EUEC during this year's campaign (beginning in August). Those donations are an important part of our operation and I am very grateful.

In a week, we will have a chance to enjoy poetry from our members, followed by a holiday party (see details below, including what to bring if you would like). I look forward to seeing many of you there. For those who can't be present, we will webcast the poetry readings. There is also a report on our previous Lunch Colloquium and a link to its webcast.

I am continually amazed by how our members continue to distinguish themselves with scholarly and service activities.  Below is a reminder of the deadline for nominating fellow members for our Distinguished Faculty and Service Awards.  Please consider making a nomination!

This past spring, we had a great exhibition of member art in the Schwartz Center, and we have been invited to participate next spring. More information and a call for submissions is below.

Jim Keller has some useful healthcare information, Holly York reports on the University Senate, there is a report on the last GA-HERO meeting, there is information about some member activities, there is a brief report on happenings around campus on the issues of diversity and inclusion, and Dianne has another campus picture for you to identify.

I am very grateful to John Bugge, Herb Benario, and Gretchen Schulz for help with proofing and editing.

A Season of Thanks and Giving 

Leaving the Thanksgiving holiday and approaching the end of the year provides an opportunity for reflection about the year and what has been worthwhile and what is worth supporting.
Our yearly donation campaign began in early August with a mailing to all of our members. It is difficult for me to express how appreciative and grateful I am on behalf of EUEC for your generosity. Funding from members is an important part of our budget and in particular helps us to do programming that we could not otherwise do. Over 100 of you have already made a donation for this year.
For those of you who have not yet made a donation, there is still time! If you are comfortable making donations online, there is a link in the left-hand column of this newsletter that you can click and that will take you to Emory's secure website for donating. If you would prefer to make a donation by mail, you can send an email request to Dianne Becht ( and she will be glad to send you a donor form and return envelope, or you can just mail a check payable to Emory University directly to EUEC at The Luce Center, 825 Houston Mill Road NE #232, Atlanta, GA 30329. If you are not sure whether you have made a donation this year, Dianne will be glad to check for you.
Thank you all for your generosity and support this year.

Medicare open enrollment ends December 7.  All those who have a Part D drug plan should check to see if their current plan is still the best one for them (see more below).  Those who are getting an Emory HRA through One Exchange will need to submit a Recurring Premium Reimbursement Form by the end of the year.  Instructions (thanks as always to EUEC member Jim Keller!) are below.

Diversity and Inclusion at Emory

As at many other campuses across the country and in response to a number of events of which I am sure you are aware, there have been some student protests at Emory and concerns expressed about injustices and lack of diversity at Emory.  The Emory Wheel covered a student protest on November 11 and a Town Hall meeting on November 18.  The University administration has sent two campus-wide emails.  The first, on November 12, was from Dean of Campus Life Ajay Nair with a foreward by President Wagner on the topics of justice and open expression.  The second, sent on November 24, was a Statement of Commitment to Diversity and Inclusivity from President Wagner.  More University-wide and school-level meetings are planned, so this is an ongoing story.

LCBotDec7Lunch Colloquium December 7 and Holiday Party

In a reprise of one of our most popular programs from a couple of years ago, two of the practicing poets among our members will present their work as a prelude to our usual celebration of the holiday season, featuring contributions of music, memories, and homemade treats from those attending.  And speaking of contributions, also as usual, we'll be collecting Toys for Tots, such an easy way for us to help others celebrate the season, too.
(1) First, Gene Bianchi and Don Saliers will share some of their work (and some of the stories behind that work) with us. We had hoped their fellow poet Trudy Kretchman would be able to do the same, as she did, to much acclaim, upon the occasion of our earlier "mash-up." (Some of us remember her witty flower poem particularly well.) As it happens, Trudy won't be able to join us this time. But we're hoping a couple of her poems may do so via voices other than her own. And we know we'll enjoy what Gene and Don have to offer--as always. We will complete the pre-party portion of the Colloquium with a few more poems related to the holidays so many cultures celebrate at this time of the year or related to the seasons whose shifting at this time have no doubt prompted the whole history of these celebrations. A number of volunteers have already identified poems (by others) they'd like to share. If you've got another to suggest, please check with Gretchen Schulz at, to see if we might still schedule you into the program. (And note that the poem you present needn't be an English one; if you've got a favorite in another language, we'd be interested in that, for sure, especially if you can bring copies with you or send one to Gretchen for copying. I know I'd LOVE to hear--and maybe read along with--something lovely in German, or French, or Spanish, or Italian, or, or, or.)

(2) Then there'll be our actual "collection bucket"--or rather a "collection box." We are reinstituting a practice from earlier times in the EUEC by asking members to consider making a contribution to TOYS FOR TOTS upon this holiday occasion. We'll take care of getting anything you bring where it needs to go. As for what you might bring? The website asks only that toys be new and unwrapped. And it encourages people to think creatively in considering what might qualify as toys. Remember, too, that some of the "tots" the program serves may in fact be teenagers who might enjoy something more functional than "toys."
(3) We'll be offering everyone lunch, of course--with the usual request that you r.s.v.p. as to whether you'd like the lunch or not when you r.s.v.p. as to whether you'll be able to attend. But we're also offering those of you who enjoy holiday baking a chance to share some of your favorite sweets-that-suit-the-season with us. We're seeking volunteers willing to bring a couple of dozen such treats for distribution when the party portion of our session begins. (We'll provide the sparkling cider.) Anyone who's willing and able to give in this way should email Gretchen Schulz to sign up to do so. Her email is We hope we'll get half a dozen volunteers, bringing two dozen cookies (or cookie-like-things) each (in non-returnable containers of some sort--baggies would be just fine). And we'll be happy to send leftovers home with those who'd like them.

(4) In between sips of cider and bites of cookie, you'll have a further chance to give (so as to enhance our party atmosphere) by singing holiday SONGS and sharing holiday MEMORIES. Handouts will help us join in renditions of classics of the season (from as many cultures as possible). And if any of you are up to performing a special favorite, we'd love to hear from you. (We know some of you are singers whose talent matches your enthusiasm.) And we'll alternate our communal and individual music-making with chances for individuals to speak of special moments from their remembrances of holidays past--moments that might resonate with the rest of us, too. Please come ready to contribute in this special way. We'll try to allow time for all who want to do so.

(5) We'll conclude our party by having all in attendance vote on the attendee who deserves the award for "The Most Spectacularly Seasonal Sweater" (and whether that's spectacularly ugly or spectacularly gorgeous will be up to you). The winner will go home with bragging rights . . . and with a very special prize . . . we promise.

LynnBotNovember 16 Lunch Colloquium

How did we get here, where are we going, and are we alone?

David Lynn, Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Chemistry and Biology

On November 16 we had the pleasure to hear David Lynn, Professor of Chemistry and Biology, talk about some of the "big questions."  What big questions, you ask?  Well, how about: "How did we get here?" "Where are we going?" "Are we alone?"  We learned that these questions, which are customarily pondered by theologians, are now a topic of scholarly inquiry by scientists.  Moreover, these scientists actually get paid to think and write about the stuff we used to consign to the province of late-night dorm discussions.  Is academia a great profession, or what?
More specifically, Dr. Lynn outlined some of the logic, facts, and arguments to support the idea that in addition to the inexorable decline toward entropy, matter and energy in the universe also self-organize to exchange information - and that this exchange undergirds much of what comprises living organisms, whose evolution may be inevitable throughout the universe. 
As you might expect, the discussion following Dr. Lynn's presentation was both diverse and stimulating.  Overall, a wonderful and enlightening luncheon event at the Emeritus College.

HeroBotEUEC represented at GA-HERO MEETING in Macon 

On a crisp and sunny Friday the 13th of November, Gretchen Schulz and John Bugge journeyed to the western outskirts of Macon and the almost brand-new campus of Middle Georgia State University, to attend a meeting of GA-HERO - the Georgia Association of Higher Education Retiree Organizations, the state's three-year-old consortium of academic retirement groups. Gretchen and John are members of the Board of Directors of GA-HERO, and the EUEC is one of its founding members (along with Georgia State University's Emeriti Association).
Normally the consortium meets in or around Atlanta, but this time it seemed advisable to venture south, to allow downstate schools to participate more easily, especially since the main purpose of the meeting was to explore how GA-HERO can help the many in-state institutions that lack retirement organizations (ROs) to get one up and running. It turns out that most such schools are well outside the metro-Atlanta area. Thirteen schools sent a total of more than twenty representatives to this meeting.

The discussion centered on public colleges and universities, those within the University System of Georgia (USG), because the State Board of Regents has recently established a Retiree Council, which is meant to operate in parallel with the Board's existing Faculty and Staff Councils, to advise the Regents on matters that are of special concern to retired faculty and staff.
This is a surprisingly forward-looking initiative for the Regents, indeed a rare formal and institutional acknowledgement on their part of the continuing relevance of the System's retired faculty and staff. It is so cutting-edge, in fact, that most of the state schools don't even have retirement organizations yet from which they could nominate candidates to the USG Retiree Council!
Two good examples, indeed, were the host institutions for this very conference: neither Middle Georgia State University nor Darton State has a retirement organization, though their joint sponsorship of the meeting suggests they are eager to establish one. (For those who have not been paying attention to the Georgia Regents' "merger-mania," the former institution is the result of the 2012 merger of Macon State College and Middle Georgia College, with its status raised to "university" in 2015. The latter - Darton State College - is perhaps even less well known to those living above the Fall Line: starting as Albany Junior College in 1963, it became Darton State College in 1987, but just three weeks ago it was summarily merged with Albany State - one of the three historically black colleges in the state system - and renamed Albany State University!)
The discussion on how to start a retirement organization was ably led by representatives of two schools whose organizations were successfully launched within the last few years: West Georgia University in Carrollton and Valdosta State University in Valdosta. Both ROs are flourishing, both include both faculty and staff retirees - which is actually more the norm across the state - and both have established cordial relationships with strategically important units in their university administrative structures.
From the perspective of the Emory representatives to the meeting, a number of very interesting and sometimes surprising understandings emerged from several hours of discussion:
  • The University System of Georgia is both much larger than either of us had imagined in its panoramic reach from mountains to coastal plain, not to mention immensely more rich, diverse, and complex than we knew.
  • With a functioning RO the concerns of an institution's retired academic population are far more likely to be recognized, acknowledged, valued, and acted on. (Which is equivalent to saying that, without an RO, those concerns will likely be ignored.)
  • In Georgia most of the state's public institutions have yet to form an RO, but with guidance from schools that are members of GA-HERO many of them will be able to establish one.
  • There is no possibility an RO can be formed without a push "from below," from faculty and/or staff, but there is also no substitute for a receptive and sympathetic administrator or two, who can provide both institutional sanction and minimal funding.
  • ROs are a benefit to their institutions in myriad ways - a fact that needs to be made clear to administrators who might otherwise resist establishing one.
  • While Emory's Emeritus College has much in common with Georgia's public-university ROs, it is also unique in Georgia in 1) being exclusively an organization for faculty and senior administrators, and 2) focusing as much as it does on continued intellectual growth and development and the life of the mind.

Winship Professor Emeritus of the Arts and Humanities

EUEC member Jim Flannery sends the following information about A Southern Celtic Christmas Concert:

In poetry, music, song, dance and story, A Southern Celtic Christmas Concert focuses on the Christmas traditions of Ireland and the other Celtic lands as well as the continuance of many of the same traditions here in the South. The Concert features the musical talents of three Grammy Award winners along with some of the top traditional musicians in the country. A special feature is the rare television appearance of the late Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney talking about the influence on his poetry of the mystical forms of Christianity developed in the monastic communities of medieval Ireland. As you will gather from the attached note on Heaney's involvement with the Concert, there are direct connections between the theme of his poem "St. Kevin and The Blackbird," which I perform in the program, and the message of Pope Francis concerning "the miracle of love" as a force capable of breaking down the boundaries among people throughout the world. For many viewers, this is the most powerful aspect of the whole program.

For eighteen years the Concert was one of the most popular Christmas events on the Emory campus. The same Emory connections exist in the film of the Concert, from a chorus of students trained by master conductor Eric Nelson to the brilliant stage setting of theater professor Sarah Ward to a dazzling improvised gospel song, "Nobody's Fault But Mine," performed by former Woodruff and Bobby Jones scholar Garrett Turner, to the Schwartz Center itself, which has never looked more beautiful. The Emory faculty members and students more than hold their own with the guest professionals - a long tradition with our performing arts programs that I helped to establish in founding the theatre program some thirty years ago.

The dates and times for the broadcast of the Southern Celtic Christmas Concert on GPB statewide are Monday, December 21 at 11 pm and Thursday, December 24 at 7 pm. This marks the fifth year in a row that GPB is featuring the program during the Christmas Season.

AEBot2016 Arts Exhibition

2015 EUEC Exhibition

The EUEC has again been invited to display the artwork of its members in the Chace Gallery of the Schwartz Center next spring.  A committee of EUEC members (Pat Miller, Katherine Mitchell, Dorothy Fletcher, and David Goldsmith) is helping to organize this exhibit.  There are many very talented artists of all types in EUEC and we hope that you will want to participate in this exhibit.  Below is the committee call for submission:
Call for Submission
The 2016 Emory University Emeritus College Art Exhibit will showcase works of art created by members of the Emory Emeritus College community. It is a juried exhibit that will hang in the Chace Gallery of the Donna and Marvin Schwartz Center for Performing Arts during March of 2016. As we did this past spring, we will also have a reception to open the exhibition, although the date for that has not yet been set.  We would like the focus of this exhibition to be artwork that has been created in retirement.
Artwork for Exhibition
Art works for the exhibition must be ready for hanging on the walls of the Chace Lobby and must be framed (if appropriate).  It will also be possible to mount at last one mobile. There are no facilities for permanent exhibition of other types of artwork, such as sculpture or carvings. However, for the reception, we will have spaces in which works that do not hang can be displayed, and we encourage submission of any type of work that could be displayed during the reception.  The Schwartz Center is locked when not in use. However, the Chace Lobby is a public space. Although in general there have not been problems with the security of any hung art, it is not possible to guarantee the safety of any submitted art. Jpeg photographs of such artwork should be submitted by the January 15 deadline.
Guidelines for Participation
Entry deadline: Friday, January 15 by 5 p.m.
Artists may submit photographs (in jpeg format) of up to three works of art in any medium. No single work may exceed 34 inches in any direction.

The application should include:
            1-A separate jpeg (plus any detail shots) for each work submitted.
            2-Documentation list of images: Name. Title. Date. Media. Dimensions.
            3-Contact information: Name, address, phone numbers, email address.  
Applications may be submitted online to or by a packet delivered to the Emeritus College Offices at The Luce Center, 825 Houston Mill Road NE #232, Atlanta, GA 30329.  If you are willing to ship your artwork, EUEC members who live anywhere can participate in this exhibition!  For initial judging, do not send original works of art.
Selection and Delivery:
The committee will notify artists about the inclusion of their work in the exhibit in early February.
Works accepted for the exhibit must be delivered to the Emeritus College Offices at The Luce Center by 5 p.m. on Friday, February 19. Work must arrive ready for presentation, framed, and ready to hang if suitable. Installation instructions, if needed, should be included.  You may have your work shipped to the office if you prefer not to deliver it yourself.

Emory University Senate and Faculty Council Meeting
At a joint meeting on November 17, the Senate and Faculty Council heard presentations from John Morgan, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, who outlined the selection process for the new Emory President, and Michael Sacks, Vice-Provost for Planning, on the development of a new strategic plan for the University.
I. Presidential Search Committee

A search advisory committee was convened with the charge of building a procedural structure for the Search Committee. Their plans, including the composition of the committee membership, were presented on October 9. The Presidential Search Committee will consist of fourteen members: eight trustees, one present member of the President's cabinet, three faculty, and the presidents of SGA and the Alumni Association. You may read the entire text of an email John Morgan sent to the Emory Community with a list of all members of the committee by clicking here.  The Search Committee will be advised by a Constituent Advisory Committee composed of representatives of various constituencies of the Emory community.
The Search Committee will develop a presidential portfolio including goals and aspirations reflecting the concerns of the Emory community, leadership of the new Strategic Plan and launching of a capital campaign.
A short list of five search firms has been compiled. The Search Committee is expected to finish its work by May 2016, and a decision is projected for June 2016.
The communication plan includes the web site

You can share your comments about the process and the next president by going to the following website:  Giving your input on that site is perhaps one of the most direct ways to give faculty input to the Search Committee.
II. The Next Strategic Plan
With the present 10-year strategic plan "Where Courageous Inquiry Leads" reaching completion in 2015, the next plan, "Thinking and Acting Strategically", will run for five years, 2016-2021. Because of the rapidly changing nature of higher education, five years seems a more practical time frame. While the previous plan was comprehensive, with all schools required to align with the University plan, the new plan will be focused, with schools aligning where alignment already exists. In other cases, cross-school initiatives will be developed in consultation with the Provost's office. As in the previous plan, there will be a survey to identify cross-cutting initiatives.
The project plan will consist of:
  1. An initial community survey to identify recurrent themes
  2. External analysis of peers and the industry
  3. Assessment of school capabilities
  4. Stakeholder engagement
  5. Appointment of a steering committee
  6. Initial draft of strategic themes
  7. Call for proposals. Those who propose initiatives will be the ones to implement them. Compensation for this work is in the plan.
  8. Selection of initiatives
  9. Distribution of Strategic Plan. The goal for this is one year from now.
There will be a web site, where all are encouraged to provide input.

Most people will want to keep the Medigap or Medicare Advantage plan in which they are currently enrolled. 

Individuals who switch from an Advantage Plan to a Medigap Plan or who want to change Medigap Plans may be subject to medical underwriting.

During the open enrollment period retirees should place much of their attention on the Part D drug plan asking the following questions:
  • Has the premium gone up? 
  • Is there now a deductible?
  • Are all your drugs covered, what tiers are they classified in, and how much will it cost for each tier?
  • Drug plans tend to change each year and the fact that your current drug plan is best for you now does not mean the same plan will be best for the same drugs next year!
Choosing a Part D Drug Plan
Retirees are free to select a drug plan without One Exchange (and they will have many more choices if they don't use One Exchange). For those retirees drawing Social Security, the monthly premium is deducted from their monthly check; for those not currently drawing Social Security (under age 70) the deduction will come from their checking account. One Exchange is an optional, value-added service which many retirees will choose to rely on. All of our retirees over the age of 65 will need to have minimal contact with One Exchange if they want their HRA supplement from Emory; beyond that, they don't have to use One Exchange to select a Medigap plan, Medicare Advantage plan, or Part D plan.
You can see a complete list of drug plans available to you by going to .  In order to get a list of drug plans that will be most useful to you, you will need to enter all of the drugs you currently take.  One factor that One Exchange uses in selecting the drug plans it offers has to do with the quality and reliability of the drug plans; if you choose a drug plan not offered by One Exchange, it would be prudent to look at the star rating of the drug plan, which is given (if it exists) in the listing of available drug plans for you.  Particularly if any of your drugs are expensive or not so common, this step can be very important in controlling the cost you will pay for your drugs. 
Emory Subsidy through One Exchange

Members should not forget that they have to send in the One Exchange Recurring Premium Reimbursement Form and a copy of the Social Security Benefit Award Letter to obtain their monthly HRA for the 2016 year.  You can get a copy of the One Exchange Recurring Premium Reimbursement Form by clicking here.   Jim Keller has made the process of filling out this form much easier by providing a step-by-step guide on what information you need to enter.  You can get his instructions by clicking here.  Note that you do not have to send them a Direct Deposit Authorization again if you completed one in 2015 to have them deposit the Emory subsidy in your checking account.  

WalkBotWalking the campus with Dianne

Did you figure out where we were on campus in the last photo?  I know one of our members did!  No prize, but bragging rights can be awarded to Herbert Benario who identified the Goizueta outdoor theater and plaza area.  If you've never seen it in person, go take a look, it's a great place to sit and read or have a snack from the nearby Highland Bakery Cafe located on the ground floor of Goizueta Business School.

Since it's getting a bit cooler, let's go indoors for our next photo.  This building isn't much to look at on the outside, but inside is quite interesting, especially the stairs shown below.  Hint: Here, you can get something good to eat and also view some art in an upper lounge area.
