Post Retirement Teaching

In addition to the health benefits that are listed on the Pension and Benefits site, retired faculty members and professional librarians are also eligible for post retirement teaching, senior scholar status, faculty library privileges as well as University affiliation for grant and/or research purposes. Please consult the current YUFA collective agreement for details.

Under the post retirement teaching provision faculty members who retire on their normal retirement date are allowed to teach up to 5 full courses, to a maximum of 2 courses per year on a part time basis. The salary rate for each course is $16,238. This allotment must be used over a six year period immediately following normal retirement age. Professional Librarians who retire on their normal retirement date are also allowed to fulfill five one third professional librarian responsibilities on a part time basis. The salary rates for these appointments are one–fifth of the salary floor for the Senior Librarian. To exercise this privilege, retirees must provide a 9 month notice to the Dean or University Librarian. Details of this provision are contained in Article 14 of the YUFA collective agreement.

Senior Scholars

Retired faculty and librarian must notify their Dean the Associate Vice President (Research), Office of the Vice President, Research and Innovation of their decision to elect Senior Scholar status. In addition to the provision of office space, secretarial support and computer on availability basis, retired faculty and librarians also have access to a professional expense reimbursement fund for the reimbursement of expenses incurred in pursing professional scholarship. This fund is subject to the same guidelines and procedures as continuing full time faculty members. Details of this provision are contained in Article 14 of the YUFA collective agreement.
