SUNY Retiree Service Corps - Connecting with our retirees through service.
Campus-based Retiree Programs and Organizations

Campus Retiree Organizations and Programs List

Several SUNY campuses sponsor an official retiree organization (established/run by retirees) or program (campus-sponsored). A goal of the SUNY Retirees Service Corps (RSC) is to promote the creation and active use of campus-based retiree programs and organizations. These entities provide socialization opportunities for retirees and help them maintain a connection with the campus as well as foster volunteerism. Many campuses are in the process of developing such programs.

Click here for a detailed distinction between a higher education retiree organization and a higher education retiree program.

The list of SUNY campus organizations and retiree programs with contact information below is expanded as entities are created and the SUNY RSC is notified. To see if your campus offers any such program, click on the letter below that corresponds to the first letter of your campus name; if your campus letter is not represented, then they most likely have no retiree program or organization. Please contact the RSC at retirees@suny.edu if your campus has such an entity and it is not on the list below.

NOTE: The SUNY Retirees Service Corps also produces a downloadable/printable PDF version of the list. Click the blue link at the end of this sentence to open, view and print the latest version of the Campus Retiree Program & Org. Contact Info‌‌‌‌‌‌ list‌.
