Faculty Retirement Seminar

Year of Funding: 

While retirement can be a life-changing event for almost everyone, for faculty especially it raises fundamental questions about what it means to be a professor and how one’s identity and purpose are defined by more than the specific demands of a ‘job’. The purpose of this seminar is to provide faculty with a structured setting in which to reflect on retirement with UW colleagues.
