PROFS is pleased to announce its new emeritus membership program, co-chaired by Brent McCown, Emeritus Professor of Horticulture, and Louise Robbins, Emeritus Professor of Library and Information Studies. Leaders of PROFS have known for some time that while retirement may mean time away from campus, many faculty have the desire to remain involved and informed about legislative issues that affect campus. The events of the past year and changes to state employee benefits made the decision to create an emeritus membership program an easy one.
Brent and Louise enthusiastically agreed to lead the new effort and have already reached out to more than 250 emeritus faculty. Emeritus membership in PROFS is $50 per year, and a membership form is available here. PROFS will include emeritus faculty in its email updates and plans to host a coffee or brown bag for emeritus members later this spring. Please contact Michelle Felber (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like more information.
