Wondering where to start in the planning process?

The Retirement Checklist can help!

People are living longer than ever. Advances in medicine & technology are not only helping us live longer, but live better as well. A healthy and happy retirement requires careful planning. At the U of R, we are committed to supporting you through this process and beyond.

Retirement. Ever. Better.

The Office of Total Rewards presents The Retiree Spotlight! Staying connected to our University of Rochester retirees is important to us. To show how much we appreciate them and their years of dedication to the University, we’ve given our retirees the opportunity to tell us who they are, how long they’ve been with the University of Rochester and what they are up to now. We thank you for your hard work and years of dedication!

Carol Root

Carol Root. Carol retired in December of 2007 after dedicating 27 years to the University of Rochester at the School of Nursing as an Administrative Assistant. She interacted closely with many extraordinary students and staff, including providing support to the SON PhD program. She enjoyed working in Academic Affairs, assisting with financial aid, endowed scholarships and scheduling courses. Now that Carol is retired, she continues working as a volunteer at the Canine Development Center for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a place she has been for over 10 years. She misses Rochester, but most of all the people she worked closely with at the University of Rochester. The faces of deans, faculty, staff and students are still permanently in her mind and heart.
