News & Notes

Stay Safe and Healthy

Keep in touch with other retired faculty members by attending the Research Seminar and Program series via ZOOM on your computer.

The Retired Faculty Book Club is another way to stay connected and enjoy both a good read and time with your colleagues.





Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all of the Fall BCARF events will be online via ZOOM.  Please see the schedule in our "Upcoming Events" section. We hope to begin meeting face-to-face again in the Spring.  Stay safe and healthy.
