Anita Mukherjee, an assistant professor of risk and insurance at the Wisconsin School of Business, has been named a TIAA Institute Fellow.

Per TIAA’s website, “Institute Fellows are nationally recognized scholars and higher education administrators with deep expertise in the areas of financial security (including lifetime income and retirement security, retirement plan design, and financial literacy and capability) and higher education leadership (including innovation and financial sustainability, academic workforce trends, and institutional governance and risk management).”

The Fellows community helps to further TIAA Institute’s mission of thought leadership and of providing “rigorous research that addresses critical issues impacting individuals and institutions.”

Mukherjee’s research avenues cover both U.S. and emerging market settings and include social insurance, financial literacy, and legal policies on vulnerable populations, particularly in relation to aging and health.

“Anita’s appointment as a TIAA Institute Fellow is a testament to her outstanding work and scholarship. We are grateful to have her here at the Wisconsin School of Business,” says Joan Schmit, the American Family Insurance Distinguished Chair in Risk Management and Insurance and a professor of risk and insurance at WSB.
