The Association Program

The Association offers the retired faculty 10 Retired Faculty Research Grants every year supported by the Office of the Provost. It sponsors events and activities that engage social interaction among its members such as two annual luncheon meetings featuring a lecture usually by a University faculty member. The luncheon meetings are held at the Faculty Club Restaurant in the Leavey Center. It also sponsors excursions to historical sites in the area and other events. As an outreach to the community the Association offers a series on mini-courses for individuals 55 or better taught by retired faculty members and other experts in their fields. The Georgetown University Learning Community Program is an extremely popular and intellectually enriching program. At the end of each academic year the Association participates in a Memorial Mass honoring deceased and retiring faculty and staff. After the Memorial Mass members of the Association are invited to a lunch hosted either by the President of the University or by the Jesuit Community.
