Consulting Services - two people shaking hands

Engage an arohe expert

AROHE’s expert consultants offer a mix of innovation and solid practicality with the ultimate goal of transforming retirement for the benefit of both colleges/universities and their retired faculty and staff. Whether a client is in the beginning stages of establishing a retirement organization or further expanding an existing organization, consultants can help jump start the effort. Consultants are available to advise on a variety of topics, including

  • Starting a retirement organization, such as a retired staff or faculty association, a retirement center, or an emeriti center.
  • Creating win-win relationships with retired faculty/staff.
  • Advocating for benefits and privileges for retirees.
  • Enhancing an existing retirement organization.
  • Seeking financial assistance for retiree programs.
  • Making the retirement process easier for faculty and staff.

What does consulting include?

A consultation begins with a conversation to identify the organization’s needs and desired outcomes. Then the consultant will propose the optimal plan to meet the identified goals. Consultations can be completed by telephone or video conference, or can include site visits. Consultants can conduct surveys, interview stakeholders, make presentations to administrators and/or write formal reports.

"For more than two years, the UC Riverside Emeriti and Retirees’ Associations tried in vain to obtain funding for a professionally-staffed retiree center. Then an AROHE consultant gave a convincing presentation to UCR’s senior administrators, emphasizing a center’s role in creating a culture of philanthropy among emeriti and retirees. The campus subsequently funded a part-time director. Without the presentation, we would still be asking for funding.
