Cornell Retiree Engagement

Retirees and their spouses/partners are encouraged to participate in various engagement opportunities (in-person and virtual) and social events on and off campus.  Cornell supports the interests of its retirees through a seat on the Employee Assembly governance board and provides a liaison with the university on important retiree issues.

All Cornell staff and faculty are automatically added to the Cornell Retiree Newsletter and retiree listserv upon retirement. For more information, call (607) 255-0388 or email
