UCSC Retiree &  Emeriti Center

The UCSC Retiree and Emeriti Center (REC) exists to serve all UCSC Retirees, both staff and faculty. The primary goal is to be an informational resource for all retirees concerning health and benefits, retirement planning, lifelong learning, and many other topics related to all retirees. Housed under University Relations, the REC office is located in the Scotts Valley building on Enterprise Way and staffed by the REC Coordinator, Christy Dawley. In addtion, Jean Fargo is a volunteer member of the UCSC Retiree Association Board and works closely with Christy and University Relations in the ongoing development of the REC and defining the role it plays to serve all retirees.
