The goal of the Association is to serve as a liaison between retired faculty, AAPs, staff and the University, support its emeriti members’ professional endeavors through retired faculty grants, facilitate social ties through lectures, tours, and cultural activities, provide volunteering opportunities, and reach out to the community through the Learning Community Program.
