Emeriti Academy


The CWRU Emeriti Academy was launched by three Distinguished University Professors in the fall of 2015 to foster closer continuing relationships with emeriti faculty after they retire from full-time employment. The Emeriti Academy is administered through the Office of Emeriti Affairs in the Office of the Provost.   

The CWRU Emeriti Academy is a member of the Association of Retirement Organizations in Higher Education (AROHE). See www.arohe.org.
