SIUE Emeriti Faculty Association

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 Fund

Request For Proposals

The Emeriti Faculty Association has among its purposes supporting the development and enrichment of SIUE faculty, and thereby enhancing 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. 

In collaboration with the SIUE Faculty Senate, the Emeriti Faculty Association is soliciting proposals from SIUE tenure and tenure-track faculty for projects that strengthen the academic quality of programs and that enhance the University’s reputation.  The deadline for proposals is September 8, 2014.  For the guidelines and application, click here.
