COR Emeritus Grants for 2020-21

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic's impact on the campus budget, COR will not be able to award emeritus grants this year. We know that the grants have been meaningful to many emeriti, and we hope to bring them back when the financial situation improves.


Meeting Schedule

COR meets monthly on Wednesdays from 3:00-5:00pm. All 2020-21 meetings will be held remotely.
