The MOARS Committee hosted an “Approaching Retirement” panel of emeriti faculty members, moderated by Chancellor Emerita Rebecca Chopp. Panel Members William Cross, Margaret Whitt, Arthur Jones, and Jeffrey Jenson shared their experiences in navigating the complex transition that is retirement. Over 50 people attended this January event, including other retired DU community members. You can view a recording of the panel here. The VPFA’s office will be following up on some of the challenges shared by the panelists, and holding more events to further strengthen ties between the faculty and DU at all career stages. Many thanks to MOARS, and its indefatigable leader Eleanor McNees, for their leadership in creating and promoting the panel, and focusing on the unmet needs of retired faculty.
