UVM Retired Faculty and Administrative Officers
PurposesThe UVM Retired Faculty and Administrative Officers (UVM-RFAO) is a long-established organization on campus with focus upon issues and developments of particular concern to the 500+ retired faculty and administrative officers; to provide information in a timely manner for important developments including retirement benefits, to represent the interests of retired faculty and administrative officers on campus, and to provide opportunities for social interactions among members. The responsibility for organizational activities is carried out by the Executive Board which is made up of 8 members, elected at a Spring meeting of the organization, for two year terms. Three of the members of the Executive Board serve two-year renewable terms as President, Vice-President, and Secretary. Additional members may be appointed to the Board for specific organizational duties (e.g. voting representative to Faculty Senate; representative to Association of Retirement Organizations in Higher Education; editor of HERMES, the organizational newsletter; website coordinator.)
President of the UVM-Retired Faculty and Administrative Officers, Emeritus Professor Jack McCormack.

Membership InformationAll retired faculty and officers of administration are automatically, upon their official date of retirement, members of the UVM-RFAO. We encourage all retired faculty and officers of administration to participate in UVM-RFAO activities, so as to maintain and enrich interactions with colleagues who have worked together for many years, as well as to stay connected to UVM.
