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, librarians, and certain members of the retired professional staff (see Bylaws for details) are eligible for Active Membership with full voting rights. Spouses of Active or Associate Members qualify as Associate members.  Eligible retirees 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. 

This site aims to provide useful information to retired faculty through the links on the menu at left. If you have suggestions for types of information you would like to find here contact us at
