Retirement Seminar

The EUEC’s Retirement Seminar is offered annually to retired faculty and those planning to retire. In 2011, the program was restructured to touch on the various aspects of retirement such as health, wellness, and financial planning. In 2012, the program was expanded to include "testimonials" from Emeritus College retirees. The addition of testimonials was so well received, that the panel is now a standard feature. Participants may expect subsequent sessions to be equally engaging and insightful.
