Retirement Recognition

Congratulations to UO retirees!

Retirement is a major career milestone and notable achievement. The University of Oregon honors those have retired since July 1, 2019 or will retire by June 30, 2021.

The Retirement Yearbook recognizes UO retirees and highlights their professional journey and service at the University of Oregon.

Due to limitations of in-person gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, Human Resources is unable to host a retirement reception this year.
