We have a new name! We are the “Georgetown University Association of Retired Faculty and Staff” (GUARFS)! It reflects the inclusive nature of our organization. At the same time, it does not change our mission.
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 non-competitive grants, facilitate social ties through lectures, tours, and cultural activities, provide volunteering opportunities, and reach out to the community through the Learning Community Program.
