The University of Chicago's emeriti faculty have raised the bar for research and teaching throughout their distinguished academic careers. Their research has driven and continues to drive fields of inquiry, and they have modeled Chicago philosophy, integrity, and critical thought for countless students. There are diverse ways emeriti engage in the University community after retirement—whether through continuing scholarship and teaching, providing input, or simply staying up–to–date on campus developments, emeriti are an important part of the University of Chicago.

This website has been developed to provide information and links to emeriti resources, which are updated ongoingly. Some useful direct links included here will take you to: the Gomer lecture recordings, transportation information, and the Emeriti Updates page.
