Engaging Emeriti Faculty

Retirement has become an increasingly fluid experience over the past few decades, with many Emeriti faculty still teaching the occasional course and/or continuing to use the resources of UIC in their research.  The UIC Administration felt that many Emeriti faculty would welcome the opportunity to interact with their fellow Emeriti faculty and with the university administration beyond the Annual Emeriti Faculty Reception. Starting fall semester 2020, the Emeriti Lecture Series meets the last Tuesday of every month via Zoom during fall and spring semesters (except December) from 1:00 – 2:00 pm.

One project in which Emeriti faculty are involved is the Provost’s Mid-Career Faculty Writing Program in which they volunteer to work with Associate Professors who request advice in becoming full professors in activities ranging from time management and the setting and meeting if deadlines all the way to detailed comments on drafts of their writing.

If you are interested in attending the Lecture Series or mentoring an Associate Professor, please email Malia Heath at maliah@uic.edu or by phone (312) 355-3561.
