  Welcome to the Retired Faculty Association

The aims of the Retired Faculty Association are:

To facilitate constructive contributions by its members to the University;
To ascertain the relevant needs of retired faculty and to communicate this information to the administration; and
To promote social and intellectual interaction among its members.

All retired faculty members and librarians are eligible for Active Membership with full voting rights. Retired faculty members and librarians living outside the Amherst area, retired faculty members and librarians of other colleges or universities, and widows or widowers of persons who were eligible for Active or Associate Membership, may become Associate Members upon payment of Associate Member dues. Spouses of Active or Associate Members qualify as Associate members without payment of dues.
