Retirement & Other Connections

Retirement Issues

CAPE members are involved in CU committees that have examined issues related to retirement. Provost Nesheim's policy statement incorporated many of the issues. The recommendations related to Emeriti are supported by active faculty in the Faculty Senate.

Retirement is a unique process for faculty. If you would like to meet with someone to talk about questions and concerns, please contact us. We have a roster of volunteers who are willing to meet with you to answer some of your questions. We have a wealth of information to assist you. For an appointment, please contact us: 255-6608 or

Cornell Care Consultant is available to you for private, confidential consultations regarding your caregiving and/or elder care concerns.

Retirement Planning: Benefits, etc.

CAPE has a member on the University Benefits Committee; the committee's charge covers a wide range of benefits for active and retired faculty and employees. Our CAPE representative is particularly concerned with issues affecting retirees or those considering retirement. CAPE has worked with the Benefits Office to assemble information for faculty considering retirement as well as other information of interest to Emeriti. Much of this information can be found in the Perqs and Privileges pamphlet, call or email us for a copy.




E-mail Lists

CAPE also maintains an e-mail list of Emeriti, which is updated as we receive new information. This is a non-interactive E-mail list of Emeriti that is used by our office staff as a quick method of informing Emeriti of meetings, lectures, and other events. Emeriti can help by notifying us of e-mail addresses and/or changes that occur.

Computer Workshops

The Mann Library Staff occasionally organizes a series of courses for us using the Public Computing rooms in Mann Library. Two to three workshops are offered each semester.

Faculty Senate Liaison

A member of CAPE serves as liaison with the Faculty Senate and attends Senate Meetings.
