May 10, 2016

THese men and women were among this year's retiring faculty members.

These 13 men and women were among those who were honored at this year's IUPUI faculty retirement luncheon.

Forty of IUPUI's most experienced faculty members and administrators who will retire this month were honored last week at the annual Faculty Retiree Luncheon.

Chancellor Nasser Paydar spoke at the event and expressed his admiration for the contributions of the men and women who are leaving the campus this spring.

"As members of the IUPUI faculty, your dedication to educating our students, advancing knowledge and practice in your discipline, and engaging with our campus and the communities we serve has created an environment where all of us strive to achieve excellence," Paydar said in his remarks.

"Wherever your next steps take you, I hope you will keep in touch and continue to follow IUPUI as it evolves to serve our students, our community and our world," he added. "You have helped build this institution, and we are grateful for all that you have contributed in time, energy and expertise."

Paydar and Faculty Council president Marianne Wokeck welcomed the guests of honor, and Dean Emeritus Lawrence Goldblatt of the School of Dentistry provided the keynote address. Trudy Banta of the Office of Planning and Institutional Improvement also offered remarks.
