Celebrating CMU's 2020 Retirees

​Due to the continuing challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to host our annual ceremony to recognize retirees. Until we are able to meet again in person, we honor and recognize your contributions to our university community in this virtual format.

Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for our students and for the Central Michigan University community!
