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 throughout the year.

  • Anne Gomer, 1928-2023

    Anne Gomer (1928-2023), mother of Richard and Maria, and widow of former UChicago chemistry professor Robert Gomer (1924-2016), passed away on April 17. In 1996, after Robert retired as a professor emeritus, Anne and Robert started a tradition of interdisciplinary research talks held regularly at their home in Hyde Park. This series became the Robert and Anne Gomer Lecture Series, a fixture of the emeriti community that is continued today by the Emeriti Center. Anne was a supporter and volunteer for many functions of the University throughout her life, including chemistry student lectures, UChicago concert series, and UChicago Medicine. Her two children are alumni of the Laboratory School.
