The retirees' section of the McGill Association of University Teachers (MAUT) welcomes as members all those who are retired from academic positions at McGill.
The needs of retirees are served by a committee whose chair is ex-officio a member of the council of MAUT. Concerns addressed by the committee include health and other benefits, activities for retirees both within and outside the university, and privileges provided McGill to retired academics. Retirees are invited to contact members of the committee with questions and suggestions regarding their areas of responsibility.
The mission of the retirees' committee is to represent the interests of retirees to the university through MAUT; to create opportunities for retirees to engage in enjoyable social, recreational and educational activities and to foster a sense of community among those who spent all or part of their academic careers at McGill. We also hope to encourage retirees to continue their association with McGill, and to demonstrate to the university that that retired faculty members represent an important pool of talent that continues to serve in various ways.
Several times a year, MAUT organizes luncheon meetings of retired members as opportunities to see old friends, receive news of interest and hear a guest speaker. Social opportunities, such as lunches and dinners (most recent: Fall Retirees Lunch, Wednesday, October 22, 2014- click here for more information), outings (a tour of the Redpath Museum on November 12, 2014 at 10:30 am is being organized), bridge, and visits to Montreal attractions, are regularly arranged - see the Section's Social and Recreational Activities. Through our affiliation with the College and University Retirees Association of Canada (CURAC), we receive a number of benefits including discounts on home and auto insurance. The current CURAC newsletter contains news on the summer conference in St John's NL together with other items of interest.
