Letter from Our Interim Executive Director

Dear Emeriti,

First, a warm welcome to the new emeriti who have been honored with Emeritus status in 2022.

Since our last issue, the Association has been slowly returning to in-person activities, although many events still offer Zoom access for emeriti who want to participate remotely.  We finally transitioned back to the in-person Appreciation & Recognition Celebration for New Emeriti Faculty which was held in April.  

Committees have been extraordinarily busy. The Social Activities Committee launched the P.O.E.T.S. Club (acronym explained in this issue) and Coffee & Conversation, both once-a-month in-person events.

The Luncheon Speaker’s Series recently educated over 80 members about Bitcoin and Investing, and starting in the Fall, the Series plans to resume in-person meetings (with Zoom as an alternative).  The Fall schedule is previewed in this issue. 

The Health & Wellness Committee sponsors outdoor Walks for Health in various Hamilton County parks, and has inaugurated a new book club with two fascinating and topical books already discussed and another discussion scheduled for October (see below in this issue). We hope to offer even more opportunities in the future. 

Please note the upcoming in-person cooking event on September 15 as part of the 1MPACT House Kitchen Initiative, described in this issue. Please lend your time and support to this program which is also a lot of fun!

Thank you to Terry Milligan for his gracious mentorship during my interim position. Terry has been a visionary leader. It is said that “great leaders are like the best conductors - they reach beyond the notes to reach the magic” in an orchestra performance. This wind ensemble conductor’s ability to bring out the “magic” talents of emeriti has led to new initiatives and stimulating events over the past two years.

Terry inspired and led the recent initiative to endow a scholarship for underrepresented, first-generation undergraduate students, and all twenty-one Board members have pledged their financial backing. This scholarship will need the support of all Emeriti.

Welcome to President Ralph Katerberg who introduces himself most effectively in this issue and provides a wonderful note of thanks for Terry’s dedicated leadership of the Emeriti Association. 

We also celebrate the 20th issue of Emeriti Connection! Twenty issues of a publication like ours, is quite a feat. The newsletter consistently details the abundance of intellectual, social, and service opportunities that makes the UC Emeriti Association such a vibrant and welcoming community.

Writing and publishing are not easy tasks, and so kudos to Pat Mezinskis for having the vision to launch Emeriti Connection in September 2017, and thanks to the energy of the current members of the Editorial & Communications team for making this issue so accessible, readable, and relevant. 

We can connect with you through your email, our website (undergoing a new look for 2022 ... see the Sneak Preview below) and LinkedIn, so please keep your contact details updated.

If you have enjoyed Emeriti Connection and want to contribute an article or comment, we look forward to hearing about your ideas and your “Second Act.”

Interim Executive Director,
UC Emeriti Association & Center
After two years of outstanding service to the Emeriti Association and Center as its President, Terry Milligan is ready to take a break while continuing to serve in the role as past-president.  We owe Terry our thanks for serving both long (2 terms) and well.   Terry faced multiple challenges over the last two years:  resignation of our Executive Director, cancellation of all in-person meetings due to the Pandemic, and unexpected reassignment of our new Executive Director.  In spite of these challenges, Terry helped us to adapt to on-line meetings, create new committees to stimulate member engagement, initiate a new scholarship program for first-generation students, and always brought a positive perspective on our situation.    Thank you, Terry.

Having worked closely with Terry for the last 2 years, I have come to appreciate his commitment to the University, and to the Emeriti Association and Center. I know that few weeks pass without Terry spending 15-20 hours dealing with Emeriti Association and Center business.  Our Association and Center is a much better organization as a result of his hard work.    I look forward to his continued guidance as I take over as President.  

Terry, as the cliché goes, you will be a hard act to follow!

Ralph Katerberg
President, UC Emeriti Association and Center
Letter from Our Board President
I must confess that I am a bit intimidated as I take over this role from Terry, who served so well for the past two challenging years. At the same time, I am very excited about the future of the Emeriti Association as an organization that serves UC emeriti faculty.    

Having been a member of the Association’s Board for a few years, I have gotten reacquainted with many of you whom I had known before retirement and have met many others whose paths I had not crossed. So allow me to introduce myself. 

I joined the College of Business in 1978 after completing my PhD in psychology at the University of Illinois. This was in a period during which business schools were beginning to make research a priority and began recruiting new faculty from primary disciplines. During my 40 years at UC, I held each professorial rank, served as Associate Dean for 13 years, as department head for several more, and even as Interim Dean for a year. Over these years I worked with many of you on committees, Graduate Council, accreditation projects and other cross college activities. It is now great to see so many of you again as fellow emeriti. I continue to be involved with UC International, having been reviewer of business programs at the UC partner, Future University in Egypt. I recently conducted a similar review of programs at a new UC partner, University of Casablanca in Morocco. Outside of UC, I remain active with the Higher Learning Commission, where I serve on accreditation teams, review committees and hearing panels for appeals. 

As you read this, the Board will be getting ready to take part in a planning retreat during which I expect our key priorities for the next year or two will appear. We will assess and build upon several new initiatives that were launched in the last year or two, and I’m sure that our Board members will have some new ideas to consider. We are open to all sorts of new ideas as we search for ways to increase engagement and attract the participation of more emeriti.    

As your new president, I want to share a few observations about the Emeriti Association and Center. First, we are a work in progress. While we have support from the Provost’s Office, it is limited in terms of funding and physical space. We need to make our Executive Director a permanent, compensated position, and we need a physical presence on campus. We need to build upon the good relationships that Terry experienced during his presidency to ensure that support for our organization will grow. A major piece of that will be to show how our organization and its members support the university. We need to be thinking about how to do so in ever more compelling ways.  Second, our organization is made up of very successful, talented and interesting emeritus faculty members.  I was reminded of that as we assembled bios on the renewed and new Board members for the May election. I was rightly humbled by comparison! Our social activities are the perfect occasions at which to meet and get to know some of our diverse emeriti colleagues. Of course, you need to show up to do so. This group of distinguished emeriti also has much to offer in service to students, new faculty and those thinking about retirement.  Again, we need more of you to get involved as these opportunities arise over the year. 

I cannot conclude without adding another hearty “Thank You” to Terry for serving the Emeriti Association and Center so well over the last 2 years.   Thank you, Terry.

Best Regards,
Ralph Katerberg

Appreciation & Recognition Celebration
for New Emeriti Faculty
The Provost's Office and the Emeriti Association Board were pleased to host this celebration once again after a two year interruption due to the pandemic. This event is held to honor new Emeriti Faculty in appreciation and recognition of their service to the university, and to welcome them to the ranks of the Emeritus Faculty.

The Dinner Banquet was held in Nippert West Pavilion on the evening of April 12, 2022, and the theme of the evening was retirement as that NEXT phase of life that is full of limitless opportunity. Provost Valerio Ferme (pictured above, first row left) is seen here with a group of honorees and guests.

Vice Provost for Academic Personnel Matt Serra served as the Master of Ceremonies. He formally welcomed the new emeriti, and reminded all attendees of the valuable outreach and service that the Emeriti Association continues to make on behalf of the university and the wider community. Serra told the newest emeriti that they were joining a very active and intellectually stimulating group of retired faculty.  Serra underscored that the Provost’s Office was delighted to take part in celebrating this transition.

Other speakers included Cate O’Hara, Program Director for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), our Interim Executive Director Antoinette Larkin, and President Terry Milligan.  New emeriti were presented with ballcaps embossed with the UC Emeriti Association’s logo to highlight their new status as colleagues in league with other retired faculty, from any department and all colleges, who come together to create and participate in a myriad of intellectual, cultural, social, service, and health-promoting activities. 

Special thanks are due to the CCM Jazz Combo led by Colin Palmieri that provided music to dine by, and to the dedicated members of the Emeriti Celebration Committee who ensured that new emeriti had an opportunity to meet members of the Board and experience the enthusiastic energy and fun that embodies our Association.

Honored were faculty receiving Emeriti distinction ratified by the UC Board of Trustees from June 2019 through December 2021, a group of 152 individuals.
Sneak Preview

The Emeriti Association Board asked our Interim Executive Director Antoinette Larkin to take on an overdue updating of our Association & Center website, on top of all her other duties. Antoinette agreed, and with her graduate assistant Cara Nicolas, has been at this task since May.

The reconfigured website, with improved navigation, structure, and content, will be a more useful resource, as well as easier for emeriti to access and use.

The sample page shown here, featuring our newly elected Officers for 2022, captures the new look of the website.

Redesign work continues during June with a tentative launch date of June 27th. This revitalized website will give us another way to share information with our membership, in addition to our LinkedIn group and e-blasts and newsletters.

Health and Wellness Committee
The Health & Wellness Book Club explores non-fiction and fiction books on topics supporting physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual well-being, and hosts virtual discussions of selected books.

Our inaugural selection was Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life by Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles.

In May we read and discussed Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life by Louise Aronson.
Andrea Wall provides a recap of that discussion below.
Louise Aronson, geriatrician and professor of medicine, provides a comprehensive look at the historical, societal, medical and cultural view of aging from a personal and professional perspective. Dr. Aronson makes a solid case of the continued need for change to improve the lives of older adults. Her poignant stories about her patients resonated with our discussion group both personally and professionally. 

The next book we will be reading is

Supporting Gen-1

The University of Cincinnati’s Gen-1 Program has been successfully supporting first-generation, low-income students since 2008.
In 2018, UC opened 1MPACT House (Stratford Heights, Building 12), a living-learning center which almost doubled the footprint of students who could benefit from living in a supportive community.
1MPACT House Kitchen Initiative

The Initiative places emphasis on meal preparation and cooking skills that will boost students’ independence and enhance the students’ understanding of the relative budget and health benefits associated with designing and cooking their own food.

  • foster independence 
  • promote creativity/ collaboration/ community
  • enhance kitchen and food safety awareness
  • develop food budget/ preparation/ cooking skills 

As part of this Initiative, members of the University Community are invited to help design menus and then cook and share a meal with students. 
Calling All Cooks
In February of 2020, members of the Emeriti Association cooked with the students of 1MPACT House. The meal featured “zoodles” (zucchini noodles) and spaghetti with an Asian peanut sauce and both chicken and tofu (for the vegetarians). We planned to cook again in March 2020, but the Initiative was derailed by the pandemic.
The program is planned to start up again in the Fall.  
Please join us on September 15.  
Creative menu ideas are welcome!

Sponsored by the Emeriti Association's Mentoring Committee.

The Piano Accompanies My Second Act
Contributed by Heather Arden
Act One

I was raised in Flint, Michigan. Neither parent had much education beyond high school, but they pushed us to pursue our studies. I focused on piano (lessons began when I was 6) and languages. When I went to Michigan State for my BA, I was offered the chance to study in the Honors College, a special program that did not require me to declare a major. It was directed by a remarkable teacher, Stanley Idzerda. That was just great – I continued my studies in piano and French, but also took philosophy, history, Spanish. Then one day I was facing graduation and what comes next – a job! I panicked. I did not want to leave Academia. The only thing I knew, and enjoyed, was studying. 

A friendly teacher offered this advice: “Go to graduate school!” Perfect. There was just one problem – music or French? How do I decide which one to give up when they were both essential to my life? But when I thought about life as a professional musician, I wondered if I had enough talent to make a go of it. So I went to NYU to study French. 

From the first semester I became fascinated by medieval language and literature (there were three medievalists on the faculty!). I graduated in 1974 with a PhD in French literature (my dissertation studied a kind of comic play called a sottie, or “fools’ play”). While teaching at Wilkes College (my first full time job), I was interviewed and then hired at UC in 1978. During my career at UC, I was immersed in medieval research – three books, 18 articles, countless conference papers. I also had wonderful graduate students, including Kathy Lorenz *, who wrote a dissertation on werewolves in three medieval literatures – French, English, Welsh. 

During my teaching career I kept up my interest in music. Often I owned a piano, including during my research year in Paris. It was a small upright that the delivery man hauled up four flights of stairs on his back! In Wilkes-Barre I had a Steinway upright but sold it when I got the job offer from UC. I realized that if I were going to be successful at UC, I wouldn’t have much time to practice. 

* Professor Emerita Kathryn Lorenz is an officer of the UC Emeriti Association Board.
Act Two 

In 2002 STRS invited me to a workshop on retirement. On the way home from the meeting, I realized that this was the opportunity to devote myself to scholarship, without having to teach. Although I enjoyed teaching, especially graduate students, it was not my principal interest. About that time I received a momentous letter from the College-Conservatory of Music, inviting me to ... a piano sale! Great, I thought, I will have an hour or so in the evening to amuse myself. I bought a beautiful Yamaha upright and began to revive my musical skills. 

The first year of retirement was hard. My husband had passed away the year before, I have no family in the area, and I missed the social interaction with students and faculty. Only the cats cared if I got up in the morning! Surprisingly I had little interest in medieval studies, which I had pursued for 45 years. I felt like I was entering a new phase of my life. Then one morning I imagined the piano floating by me, like a life raft. Why not take lessons, play for people, learn new music? Soon music was the center of my life. 

When I was looking for a teacher, I thought of consulting Michelle Conda, professor of keyboard and piano pedagogy at CCM. My husband had taken a Communiversity course on beginning piano with her before he died and thought she was wonderful. I dropped in to her office one lucky day and told her about my situation, thinking she must know every teacher in the Tri-State. After hearing my story, she said, “I’ll take you on.” Once again a lucky break changed my life. I have been studying with her ever since. She is even kind and brave enough to play duets with me!
One more major event occurred in my new musical career. When visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Flint (he’s a stringed instrument repairman, she is head of the Flint Public Library and has just spearheaded a multi-million dollar make-over), Kay handed me a dusty old box of sheet music – “I don’t need this anymore.” I found there “The Student’s First Book of Schubert” and a new world opened up. (A friend says that I fell into the black hole of Schubert!) Since then I have performed his music for local music clubs (even accompanying singers), taught several OLLI courses on Schubert, and with Michelle’s help, written and published an article on his rhythmic peculiarities! But there is more. 

I have never been particularly interested in vocal music, but Schubert’s lieder have opened up a new world. I spend time regularly studying and listening to this remarkable music. Ken Griffiths has kindly let me sit in on his courses. One day someone mentioned that there is a great Schubert festival in western Austria every summer. I decided to go, and to help my study of German, I got in touch with a TA in the German department (from Austria!). “Why do you want to learn German?” she asked. When I told her, she replied that she works at the Schubertiade in the summer! Incredible! (I imagined Schubert smiling down on me.) She advised me on how to get there, picked me up at the train station, and even invited me to stay with her Grosse Mutter. Now I have been there five times and am returning this June to hear eight recitals of Schubert's lieder! 

My life has been remarkably full, exciting, and lucky. I think back with gratitude and wonder at the many people who have helped along the way.

Tips on Staying Safe During Summer Weather Events
Extreme heat (2 to 3 days of high humidity and temperatures above 90 degrees) is a possibility this summer. Children and older adults are at greater risk from extreme heat.

FEMA has information on the website ready.gov to help us prepare, be safe, and respond when extreme heat affects our area.
For instance: Did you know that you should not use electric fans when the temperature outside is above 95 degrees? Fans create air flow that makes us feel more comfortable, but do not reduce body temperature.

Find more information like this, including how to recognize and treat heat-related illness, at www.ready.gov/heat, or download the Extreme Heat Fact Sheet using the button below.
Severe storms are also a summertime possibility. Every family should have an emergency plan, and "family" includes pets. FEMA has recommendations for how to prepare your pets for disasters. Visit www.ready.gov/pets to learn how to plan ahead for your pet's safety if you have to evacuate (including what to include in an emergency supply kit for your pet).
In Memoriam

Help us pay tribute to our deceased emeriti colleagues. If you know of any emeriti who have passed since our last issue in April 2022, please send us names and basic information.
