Special 2017 CHAE report: "Transforming Academic Retirement"
This 2017 CHAE Report summarizes the findings of a 2016 nationwide survey of higher education retirement organizations.
CHAE is pleased to announce the release of a special report: Transforming Academic Retirement: The Performance and Potential of Retirement Organizations in Higher Education. A PDF of the full report is available for download below.
This 2017 report summarizes the findings of a 2016 nationwide survey of higher education retirement organizations (RO). The report was authored by Roger G. Baldwin, Ph.D., Brett H. Say, and Angie A. Belin.
Transforming Academic Retirement takes a close look at the mission, programs and services, and outcomes and benefits of ROs. It also highlights key challenges that will shape the future and long-term sustainability of these organizations.
In addition to the findings, we hope this report stimulates a conversation about redefining this ill-defined stage of life for members of the academic profession and takes the taboo out of retirement, often an uncomfortable topic for conversation in higher education.
