Retirement Recognition

Retirement Luncheon & Ceremony

Each year UIC holds its annual Retirement Luncheon and Ceremony recognizing faculty and staff who retired from University service between August 16th and August 15th. Retirees may invite two (2) family members and one (1) current UIC employee to celebrate with them during the formal luncheon. All retirees in attendance will be honored and invited on stage to take a photo with the Chancellor and Vice Chancellor or University administrator from their area.
