Report on AROHE: "Enhancing the Retiree Connection" (William Dando)
William Dando, Distinguished Professor and Director, Senior Scholars Academy Indiana State University, reported to the conference on the founding of a national association of academic retiree organizations in the United States. After some 15 years of preparatory activity, AROHE (Association of Retirement Organizations in Higher Education) was founded at a conference held at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana in October 2002. Its objective: "to provide a forum for the development and sharing of ideas, resulting in the implementation of new models of retirement in higher education. Specifically AROHA is designed for its members to "learn about creative developments in higher education retirement organizations and campus programs; to share ideas about organizing, developing and working with such organizations; and be energized by colleagues who are actively engaged in new retirement ventures. The membership includes emeriti/retired faculty members and staff representing campus associations or centers, campus administrators concerned with emeriti/retiree relations, individuals interested in organizing campus retirement organizations, and active faculty and staff considering retirement.
Commenting on the current meeting William Dando emphasized the opportunities available for retirees in Canada to use their skills and abilities not just to advance their own interests but to make ongoing contributions to their universities, local communities, the country, and the world at large. He warned that in attempting to make these further contributions there would be opposition: opposition from junior faculty who would be concerned about competition from the "grey-haired" old-timers for teaching opportunities and grants, from administrators who might fear having people around who carried in their heads the administrative history of the institution, and from members of the public who continued to think that retired academics are no longer of any use and should just go fishing. But such opposition could be overcome.

Dr. Dando recounted the early history of the program he has developed at Indiana State University. He explained that his own background and experience enabled him, after extensive research led him to reject alternative solutions, to develop a highly innovative, indeed unique, approach designed to better meet the needs of retired faculty while at the same time benefiting the five institutions of post-secondary education in Terre Haute, stimulating economic activity in the larger surrounding region then sinking into economic depression, and enhancing a broad range of social and cultural opportunities in Terra Haute and west-central Indiana.
Concerned by the large number of faculty retiring, their demoralization when stripped of their offices and labs, the tendency for many to leave the community on retirement, the economic and social impact of these losses on the community - he was able to use his influence as a distinguished scholar, renowned "grantsman", and well-known member of the Indiana State faculty to win the support of the University administration in implementing on a three-year trial basis a multi-disciplinary program to provide funding and other types of assistance to retired faculty and staff, pre-retirement faculty and staff, and non-academic artists and others having talents and skills which they were willing to make available to educational, government, business and non-profit organizations in the region.
...
In summarizing their accomplishments to date Dr. Dando listed: enhancing the academic environment in Terra Haute, increasing the level of scholarly activity, expanding service to the university and the community, magnifying external funding, enriching social and cultural activities, strengthening the perceived worth of retired faculty, and elevating the self-image of retired faculty. He concluded by suggesting that these achievements during the three year trial period for the program meant it would be possible to move on to expanding it into what would become a College of Senior Scholars.

Dando, a retired Indiana State University faculty member, noted several punctuation and grammatical errors in the e-mail, which would be unusual for his friend, who's a good writer and like himself, a retired geography professor.
Dando also found it unusual she was in Spain, since her area of expertise is the Mideast. In addition, she has family as well as friends all over the world, and he wondered why she would contact him.
He immediately e-mailed her back: 
...
Dando did get a return e-mail outlining how he could send cash using Western Union. The e-mailer also wanted his credit union account number "so I can refund the money immediately after I get back home."
Dando smelled a scam, and he was right. He called his friend at her office in Old Dominion University in Virginia and talked to her. She had not visited Madrid.
The friend told Dando that someone had hacked into her e-mail account and obtained  the e-mail addresses of all the people she has corresponded with in recent years. She also said that her department was receiving e-mails and telephone calls from concerned people all over the world wanting to know if she needed money and where to send it.
His friend was concerned about the incident and wanted to create awareness about what had happened.
Coincidentally, Dando, who is 76, had read an article in the Tribune-Star on Thursday warning of a cash-based telephone scam that involved sending money via a commercial wire service. That scam targets elderly, who are told that a family member has been arrested and needs bail money.
Dando said he is very concerned that someone was apparently able to hack into his friend's computer and obtain many e-mail addresses. Also, the person used his friend's e-mail address to try and scam others.
 "It could happen to any of us. That's what's threatening," Dando said. "We all e-mail a lot anymore.
...
When Bill Dando received an e-mail Thursday from a colleague who said she had been robbed in Spain and needed money, he became suspicious.
