The faculty retirement literature contains several pieces related to the awareness and
perceptions of retirement plans by faculty, in general 4, 42, 107, 108, among marketing faculty
28 and community college faculty 35, and compared to employees outside of academe 109.
There are also discussions of resources for faculty as they plan for retirement 110. Faculty
nearing retirement tend to be concerned about maintaining their health insurance, library
privileges, office space, emeriti status, and part-time teaching opportunities postretirement 81.
Studies indicate that access to planning tools and information facilitates the retirement planning
process 111, but many faculty do not feel their institutions provided them adequate access to
such planning resources 112, 113.
