“Faculty Retirement Patterns and COVID-19: Impacts, Challenges and Opportunities”

Wednesday, May 26 | 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET

Webinar Materials:

According to a recent study, 25 percent of faculty over the age of 55 are now planning to retire at an older age than they had anticipated before COVID-19 made its mark on the higher ed landscape. Join report authors Paul Yakoboski of the TIAA Institute and Melissa Fuesting of CUPA-HR for this complimentary webinar to explore COVID-19’s effect on factors related to retirement readiness.

In addition to sharing their findings on changes to the expected retirement age for faculty, Paul and Melissa will be joined by TIAA's Stephanie Hale to discuss evidence-based suggestions to promote faculty retirement.
