A LISTSERV on campus was recently created by the UIC State Universities Annuitants Association (SUAA) called “ACADEMY2”. The list is for conversation-style posts related to retirement questions, comments, announcements, and concerns. The list is unique in that you may subscribe using any email address you chose (for example, gmail or yahoo mail). That way the list remains open to those who are retired and after their “@uic.edu” email address expires.
THE LIST is active with many well informed contributors participating. Additionally, UIC SUAA President, Dr. Brenda Russell, regularly responds to people’s questions. It’s a great forum for all employees (faculty, Civil Service staff, and APs) who are considering retirement. To join the list:
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- no need for subject
- In the text body of the email, type: subscribe academy2
IF YOU later change your mind, you can subscribe or unsubscribe at any time.
