Welcome to the JMU Faculty Emeriti Association

The JMU Faculty Emeriti Association is a multifaceted organization open to all faculty and administrative personnel who have been granted Emerita or Emeritus status by the JMU Board of Visitors. The organization provides an opportunity for retired faculty to continue association with colleagues and to maintain ties to the University. We welcome you to join any and all of our activities.

Over 200 retired faculty and administrative professional staff members are actively involved with the JMU Faculty Emeriti Association and with each other. We invite all retired faculty emeriti to be a part of this active group. We are a professional and social organization which encourages the interaction of emeriti through meetings, interest groups and events.
