The goal of the Georgetown University Association of Retired Faculty and Staff (GUARFS) 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.

New Partnership with GU Alumni Association Travel Society


The GUAA’s Travel Society offers specially curated travel opportunities across the globe. Don’t be put off by the name. They welcome all current and retired Georgetown faculty and staff, Georgetown alumni, families, parents, and University friends to join their trips. They look forward to helping you take epic adventures to destinations all over the globe. From river and ocean cruises, and small group experiential programs exploring local food, culture, art and history, many of their adventures include expert lecturers and keynote speakers, making traveling with Georgetown a truly unique opportunity to learn and connect with fellow Hoyas, parents, and friends.

From short immersion programs to educational cruises, rail travel, and adventures exploring natural history and wildlife, their specially selected itineraries offer something for everyone.
