Welcome to the Emeriti Home Page!
The Ohio University Emeriti Association is a non-profit association consisting of those faculty and administrative presidential appointee who have completed a period of meritorious service to Ohio University and have been awarded Emeritus or Emerita status in accord to Ohio University Policy (18.031: Emeritus or Emerita Status), and join the assocation in accordance with the constitutional requirements and paying the specified dues. For more information about joining the Association, please go to the link "News".
The Ohio University Emeriti Association is a multifaceted organization open to all who have been granted Emerita or Emeritus status by the Ohio University Board of Trustees. The Association plays no role in determining Emeriti status. The university provides a number of benefits to individuals with such status: parking, library privileges, and access to the internet through the Computer Center at a nominal cost.
Emeriti designation does not automatically make one a member of the Association; we are a dues based organization. Emeriti and their spouses become members when they pay the annual membership fee or purchase a lifetime membership. The association exists to promote a number of goals. We are a social organization which encourages the interaction of Emeriti through monthly luncheon meetings and arranging for trips to cultural programs at instate and out of state locations. The luncheons always feature a speaker discussing topics of interest to the Emeriti. Our newsletter keeps members informed about the ongoing activities of the Association.
We recruit and coordinate volunteers to serve two local arts institutions and to help at other special events. We advocate for Emeriti at the university level and occasionally at the State House in Columbus. The Association has become active in fund raising for Emeriti projects within the university. Our fund raising to date has focused primarily on developing and sustaining the Emeriti Park. We are a lively organization with anywhere from 80 to 100 persons attending our monthly meetings.
