  • This instrumental case study using the embedded single-case study design was conducted at a large midwestern university. Data collection included documents, descriptive statistics, and interviews. The themes of remaining, retiring, and returning appeared as patterns during data analysis. As universities experience the trend toward longer working lifespans, it is important that HRD practitioners include age in diversity discussions. Along with this, career development and training and development opportunities need to be reexamined. © 2000 by Jossey-Bass, A Publishing Unit of John Wiley Sons, Inc.
