Welcome to the WSU Emerita/Emeritus Society Retired Faculty Serving the Future

Welcome to the WSU Emerita/Emeritus Society

For many faculty, retirement is a time when they continue to be valuable and productive contributors to their occupations or professions and society at large. Therefore, the primary purpose of the Emerita/Emeritus Society is to enhance the relationship between the University and its emerita/emeritus faculty for the benefit of Washington State University’s land grant mission and the greater welfare of its Emeriti and provides opportunities for retired faculty to continue their scholarship and service at the University.
