The primary goal of the, The Power of SUNY Retirees: Lessons from Over 100 Retirement Stories, was to find out how SUNY retirees had adjusted to their retirement and the lessons we could learn from their retirement experiences. Based on those experiences, what steps could SUNY campuses and potential retirees take to improve their retirement planning?
An analysis of the 2012 “Survey on SUNY Retirees Volunteer Activity,” designed to capture volunteerism on their campuses and in local communities and seek suggestions to enhance such participation in community services. Motivating factors and methods to promote greater SUNY retiree involvement are discussed. Retirees are a valuable resource worthy of potential utilization for the greater good.
