We think you will enjoy reading our newsletter "Chronicles", and participating in the monthly events. If you have any questions, please contact Suzan Cioffi at 858-534-4724 or send her an email.
I am privileged to serve this year as president of our UCSD Emeriti Association. I had not fully realized how strong and active our association was until I chaired our programming committee last year and became a member of the executive committee.
Our UCSD Emeriti Association is one of the largest in the UC system with nearly 550 members. In addition to our distinguished

I am surprised how many initiatives and proposals affect emeriti and how important it is to have some input up front. This year I am particularly aware that emeriti may be anxious about changes in health care and associated retirement benefits. Read more...
