CBIZ Employee Retirement Education Meeting
Oct 14 all-day
For benefit-eligible AUS faculty and staff only:
As part of its commitment to helping employees reach their retirement goals, Antioch University has recently engaged CBIZ Retirement Plan Services as an independent registered investment advisor (RIA) to support our plan and participants. On Wednesday, October 14, CBIZ representatives will be visiting the AUS campus to host individual and group educational sessions to educate employees about offerings and how they can contribute toward effective retirement planning.
Please read below for more information about CBIZ and opportunities to participate in sessions on Wednesday, October 14:
How do CBIZ Employee Retirement Sessions differ from those offered by TIAA-CREF?
As an independent registered investment advisor (RIA), CBIZ and their representatives are able to give specific guidance regarding which particular plan investment options you should utilize given your personal circumstances. Additionally, they are able to answer other retirement-related questions you may have. Due to their affiliation with our plans, TIAA-CREF representatives are not authorized to provide specific advice regarding employee investment strategies.
What kinds of sessions are being offered on Wednesday, October 14?
1. Individual Employee Retirement Consultations: In these 20-minute sessions, employees can receive specific feedback and advice regarding their retirement planning. Participating employees will complete a Confidential Participant Questionnaire prior to their appointment. Click here to RSVP for your individual appointment.
2. Group Employee Information Sessions: CBIZ representatives will also be hosting two walk-in group sessions during which employees will receive information about the plan and how it can help them reach their retirement goals. Group sessions are offered from 10-10:30am and 1-1:30pm; no RSVP is required to attend either of these group sessions.

Convocation 2015 @ Room 100
Oct 15 @ 8:30 am

We are getting excited about our plans to gather and serve in the community again this year!

For this year’s event, we are inviting staff, faculty, current students and alumni for breakfast and an opportunity to serve on teams at a few chosen organizations both close to campus and in the Seattle area. We will also have projects on campus that benefit local organizations and allow people to participate for 1-3 hours.

Questions and comments can be directed to Aimee Bullock.

To participate, please fill out the form of your first and second choices to volunteer here:


“Why is it set to start at 8:30? It’s so early!” That’s because our sites need us there by 9/9:15 a.m. We’re serving them, so we need to be ready to go then. It’d be even better if you could get here earlier to munch on snacks before we go. I suggest 8:15 a.m. if you’d like to mosey.

“Will there be breakfast or something?” Yes! We will have breakfast snacks and coffee for you. We’ll even have some paper bags if you’d like to bring a snack for later.

“What about lunch?” Well, you’ll need to provide your own lunch like any other work day. Brown bag it, or plan to go out near your site.

“Can I invite my work-study students?” Yes! Please do!

“What should I wear?” For the warehouse/food bagging – closed toed shoes are a must. For the outdoor rain garden with Greenstreets, dress accordingly, rain or shine; if you have gardening gloves/tools, I would suggest bringing them along. For the on-campus card making, shirts you don’t mind getting markers and stuff on them.

“What about coverage for my office?” Please work that out with your supervisor/departments. Each department is responsible for what they think is best on that day, whether you close the department for that day or someone stays behind. Up to you. Front Desk will be staffed.

“Do we have to come back after we’ve completed a project?” That’s up to you. You are free to go home and relish in the fact that you helped some great folks out, or come on back and make some cards with those back on campus.

The Decades Project Writing Workshop

Fall 2015

The Decades Project is a fascinating performance by the Drama Therapy program. This writing workshop is one of the ways to contribute to this project. Join us at the ASL for a collaborative journey of writing to highlight how we are shaped by the events we experience through the decades. There will be great conversations, writing prompts, reflections, and light refreshments. During summer, we enjoyed writing about childhood treasures, heroes and villains, growing old, imagination, technology, and even inaugural speeches…. This fall, we are invited to write about strength, wisdom, courage, and time machines! Come and join our creative adventure!

Feel free to forward the invite to anyone who might be interested in reflecting on their generational experience.

For questions or more information about this writing workshop, please contact Megan Bixel or Kristi Dang at
