‘The opportunity to reconnect with old colleagues was combined with evidence of our continued relevance to the life of the University through our awards program to make for a thoroughly enjoyable event. If you weren’t there, we missed you, but hope to see you at future get-togethers.’
– Jim Weingartner

The Emeriti Faculty Association is an Association for the SIUE emeriti faculty. Founded in 2013, it provides a means for the emeriti faculty and their spouses/partners to remain active participants in the University community and to communicate with each other and with the University. It will:

  • Sponsor various social and professional opportunities for emeriti faculty to share their interests
  • Communicate the activities of the emeriti faculty to the academic community
  • Promote use of emeriti faculty as mentors, advisors, teachers, research collaborators, and consultants
  • Enhance the interaction between the University and its emeriti faculty
  • Establish an Emeriti Faculty Fund to support the development and enrichment of the SIUE faculty.

Emeriti Faculty Association Challenge Grant

The Deans of various schools and colleges across campus have challenged the Emeriti Faculty association to raise $20,000 by December 31, 2015. They have offered to match the challenge amount of $20,000 in gifts and pledges to the Emeriti Faculty Association if the goal is met. The funds raised will be used to provide grants to current SIUE faculty to create colloquia, enhance curricular development, create faculty exchanges and develop scholar-in-residence programs. If you would like to make a gift to support the Challenge Grant, please click on the link “Make a Gift” in the upper left hand corner of this page to print out a donation/pledge form. Thank you in advance for your support!
