The Emeritus Academy is pleased to announce its autumn 2019 class of 22 new members. The mission of the academy is to recognize and promote the ongoing engagement of emeritus faculty in research and in scholarly and creative activity for the enhanced reputation of the university and for the benefit of society at large:

  • By helping to support scholarly activities through small research and travel grants
  • By promoting a sense of community among Academy members
  • By working appropriately with other units across the university

The Emeritus Academy fosters active scholarship among its members and promotes the concept of lifetime scholars, which benefits its members, The Ohio State University, and the various communities with which they interact.
