Faculty Members Aren’t Planning on Retiring Soon.

This is the finding of a survey sponsored by the Chronicle of Higher Education and TIAA-CREF. I’m not planning to retire until I become totally incompetent, but others may want to move on. The survey also reports on the phased-in retirement programs that many institutions are offering. You can access the 18 page study by clicking here. Here are the major findings"

75% of faculty plan to delay retiring.

44% of faculty would delay retiring at least 5 years because of the recession.

9 in 10 faculty members say their biggest reason for not retiring is because they enjoy their work.
