Emeritus College Online Seminar with Margaret Laurence

January 28, 2020 (Thursday) 10:00am-11:30am, Online Seminar: Research for an Engaged Retirement with Margaret Laurence, Boston College:  In a youth-oriented culture, individuals in midlife who are facing 30-40 years of life after full-time employment are redefining retirement. As people are healthier, living longer, and desire to contribute to society in meaningful ways, college and university administrators have the opportunity to create innovative, intergenerational lifelong learning programs that align with missions and assist individuals in midlife with the next phase of their lives. Over the last decade, a few institutions have established intergenerational, lifelong learning programs to help individuals as they transition to the next chapters of their lives.  Beginning in early 2021, I will begin a case study to explore the programs established at Harvard Advanced Leaders Initiative, Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute, and Notre Dame Inspired Leadership Initiative.  Emeritus colleges, Osher Lifelong Learning, Road Scholar, and other programs at or affiliated with colleges and universities are informing my research.  The overall aim of my research is to help inform college and university administrators that are considering building programs for mid to late life adult learners.  An added benefit, in my opinion, is to highlight how emeritus colleges are already adding much to redefining the next phase of faculty members' lives. She looks forward to presenting her research as well as input from participants.
