UCSD Emeriti Association

The UCSD Emeriti Association provides its members an opportunity to maintain contact with their colleagues; promotes the general welfare of the members, their spouses, and their survivors; and assists members to continue their contributions to society.

If you are retiring or are retired from UCSD, please consider staying a part of the campus and connected to your colleagues by becoming a member. 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.

President's Message

          It is a pleasure to welcome you to another year of varied Emeriti Association activities. We anticipate that this coming year’s activities will continue much in the same spirit and direction as those of prior years. The primary objectives of the UCSD Emeriti Association remain – serving as your representatives and your voices while at the same time supporting and innovating the educational activities of our campus. We know that unanticipated issues will surface, and  we stand ready to keep you informed of our duties and functions.

          Under the leadership of President Mark Appelbaum the past year has been busy and rewarding in all areas of Association activity. Emeriti on both the San Diego campus and our sister UC campuses continue to make major contributions to education and fundraising. The UCSD Emeriti Association has, over the years, developed our highly innovative and successful Chancellor’s Scholars / Emeriti Mentoring Programs that together specialize in developing and enhancing career mentoring and networking skills of the participating young scholars.

          The Emeriti Association, under the directorship of Suzan Cioffi, also serves to provide social and interactive networking among both emeriti and all campus retirees. The UCSD Emeriti Association serves all emeriti with a voice within the San Diego Senate and selective Senate committees such as Faculty Welfare. Your UCSD Emeriti Association is likely one of the busiest and most productive of all emeriti groups within the ten-campus UC system. As was reported last year, analysis of the functions and educational contributions of all the UC emeriti associations over the period of 2012-2015 showed that taken together, UC emeriti constitute the equivalent of an eleventh campus.  We urge you to download from our website the report prepared by the system-wide Emeriti Faculty group (CUCEA) and entitled “A Virtual Eleventh Campus”. Read more...
