For some, retirement is a long way off; for others, it’s just around the corner. Even if retirement isn’t in your near future, evaluating your financial and family needs can begin on day one of employment at NYU.

The Work Life office has been listening to what faculty members and administrators need to successfully plan their retirement. We intend to develop workshops and offer resources to better meet the needs of the NYU community pre- and post-retirement. The Work Life office also intends to foster a continued connection between retired members of the community and NYU.

To schedule a one-on-one consultation to discuss retirement and ways to stay connected to the university, please contact our Program Director Stacey Gordon. **Please note that all consultations will be held online until NYU suspends COVID-19 guidelines.**

The Society of Retired Faculty

Retired NYU faculty members are invited to maintain their connection with the University through participation in the newly created NYU Society of Retired Faculty. This NYU community will offer opportunities to engage with other retired faculty from around the University, attend lectures, volunteer, provide mentorship, and participate in a variety of events on and off campus.

“A Conversation on Collaboration,” the inaugural event of the NYU Society of Retired Faculty was held on January 26th. Edward J. Sullivan, professor of modern art of the Americas and Deputy Director of the Institute of Fine Arts, moderated the event with Lowery Stokes Sims a renowned curator and art historian, who presented on her collaboration with artist Joyce Scott. Artist Roberto Juarez presented his collaboration, an exhibition with the artist James Casabere as they took us on a guided tour of their exhibit in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

The next Society meeting will take place on March 29th at 4 pm, where we will hear from science experts about COVID, and vaccine development and implementation.

If you are a retired faculty member, please fill out this survey to provide your thoughts, which will inform our future programming for the Society.
