Professor Emerita Smith was selected from among a group of nominees who are extremely impressive and reflect the exceptional ongoing activities of UCI emeriti/ae.

A Virtual Eleventh Campus: UC Emeriti Survey Results

A recent survey of UC emeriti regarding their activities during 2012-2015 has yielded a report that is now featured on the CUCEA website:”

In addition The Chronicle of Higher Education published an article on the activities of emeriti (focused on UC emeriti) in the June 3, 2016 edition:

We encourage you to peruse these articles and share with your campus administration as they provide more systematic documentation than anecdotal information about the substantial extent to which emeriti are contributing.
