The mission of the Emeritus Council is to enhance the relationship between Princeton University and its emeritus faculty; it is a forum to explore the dimensions of retirement in the academic community at Princeton. The Emeritus Council seeks ways to enrich the intellectual mission of the University and to maintain the social and cultural ties of the emeriti with the University community. The goals of the Council are:
- to establish structures for cultivating recognition of the emeriti as a faculty group;
- to keep emeritus faculty informed of the resources and facilities that are available from the University and the range of rights and privileges extended to emeriti;
- to help develop opportunities for voluntary participation by emeriti in the educational programs of the University;
- and to keep emeriti and family informed about availability of support in the Princeton town community for seniors and how they can contribute to the life of the senior community
The Council is sponsored by the University League. The council members are predominantly retired faculty. It is open to anyone in the academic community interested in participating, and especially welcomes pre-retired faculty.
