Emeriti Faculty Association
The Emeriti Faculty Association is an organization of SIUE emeriti faculty. It has three purposes. First, it provides support for the development and enrichment of the current SIUE tenure/tenure-track faculty that enhances the academic quality of programs and the University. Second, it sponsors various social and professional opportunities for the University’s emeriti faculty. Third, the Emeriti Faculty Association provides a means for communication among the emeriti faculty and SIUE.
All faculty members who hold the rank of emeritus or emerita may be members of the Association. Funding for the organization comes from private donations.

The Emeriti Faculty Association, founded in 2013, has among its purposes the development and enrichment of SIUE faculty in order to strengthen the academic quality and reputation of the University. An Emeriti Faculty Fund has been established to initiate an annual Awards Competition that will provide SIUE faculty with project support that is not at present funded elsewhere in the University. Proposals are requested from SIUE tenured and tenure-track faculty for projects that strengthen the academic quality of programs and the University.
