UC Santa Barbara Emeriti Association Report

Spring 2011






Emeriti Association President Morgan continued his practice of issuing periodic e-mail communications, apprizing members of developments relating to post-employment and health benefits.  These reports were distributed to all UCSB emeriti, as well as to retirees.


In conjunction with the Retirees’ Association, a quarterly newsletter was again published and distributed. 




In line with the practice of many University entities, and owing to budgetary constraints, it has been decided to distribute hard copies of the newsletter only to those who do not use e-mail.



UCSB Emeriti & Retiree Associations  2011 Spring Get Together


At its Winter 2010 meeting, the UCSB Emeriti Association Board decided to continue its collaboration with the UCSB Retirees’ Association in sponsoring social events, especially given the great success of the 2010 Fall Kick Off event.  A Spring Get Together has been planned for April 29 at the Faculty Club. The speaker will be Michael Jochim, Professor of Archaeology. The title of his talk is “The World of the Ice Man.”  Members will help defray the cost of the venue and refreshments by contributing $5.00 admission.  Recently retired faculty and staff will be the guests of our Associations.



UCSB Undergraduate Research Colloquium


In May, the Association will again participate in the annual UCSB Undergraduate Research Colloquium, which recognizes undergraduate research and creative activity across the disciplines.  Thanks to the generosity of Association members, we will be able to award cash Prizes to the authors of the most outstanding projects.  Judges will be drawn from among our Association members.
