The UCI Emeriti Association was very pleased to learn that Hillis Miller, an Emeritus Professor of English, received the very distinguished Panunzio Award for 2011.

We are currently in the process of developing a survey to determine the interest of  our emeriti and retied staff in a retirement facility.

We have reserved a emeriti table at the University Club for lunch on the third Thursday of each month. We would hope to increase interest in the emeriti activities available.

This is the fifth anniversary of our Retirement Center. It has been particularly important in coordinating and publicizing activities for the retirees and emeriti. Jeri Fredrick and two volunteers beautifully manage it.

The retires and emeriti ChancellorŐs reception was held on 15 April. This reception hosted by the Chancellor is combined with an art show featuring retire and emeriti works is very popular.

Plans for next years spring meeting are being finalized.
