SUNY Retirees Network Description
The SUNY Retirees Network (SRN) was created for retirees of the State University of New York’s state-operated and community college campuses. The SRN is composed of three main components designed to:
- Connect Retirees with Retirees - COMING SOON!
Many SUNY retirees have told us they want to stay connected with their retired colleagues. In response, we are developing a secure network that will store contact information for those retirees who choose to provide it. SUNY Retirees Network members will be able to look up and reconnect with other retirees who have registered for the Network. The more retirees who register, the more connections that can be made! The SUNY Retirees Online Directory will be available to SRN members through a username and password in a few months.
- Connect Retirees with Volunteer Opportunities - COMING SOON!
SUNY retirees who want to volunteer their time to meet a campus and/or community service need can provide areas of interest and expertise once the SRN membership process has been completed. The RSC plans to activate a volunteer matching service within the next few months, after a sufficient number of retirees expressing an interest in volunteerism have registered for the SUNY Retirees Network. Information provided by retirees will be used to match their interests and expertise with campus and community needs. The SUNY Retirees Service Corps (RSC) will contact SRN members interested in volunteerism with potential volunteer opportunities. If a particular opportunity interests them, the member may contact the campus or community organization directly to find out more. SRN members will eventually be able to search for volunteer opportunities on the secure portion of the RSC website.
- Promote Online Interaction
The SUNY Retirees Interaction Service component of the SUNY Retirees Network allows retirees to interact and exchange information with one another via a chat feature as well as explore a variety of online resources. SRN members will be able to utilize the Interaction Service site in a secure environment using a username and password after the SUNY Retirees Network application process has been completed.
