University Professional Staff and University Support Staff Retirement Luncheon

Each spring, the University hosts a luncheon to honor University Professional Staff and University Support Staff who have retired since August 1st of the previous year or will retire by July 31st of the current year.

Because of the pandemic, we have not been able to host these luncheons so, in the meantime, we are celebrating our retirees on this webpage.

Below are retirees for both the 2019-20 and 2020-21 academic years, as well as a message to the retirees from Chancellor Girod.

For more information, contact Melissa Cole in the KU Benefits Office at mcole@ku.edu or 785-864-7421
