The President of Georgia State University bestows the title, Emeritus, on faculty and administration who have distinguished themselves through research, teaching and/or service with ten or more years of honorable and distinguished service.
The Association provides Emeriti opportunities for intellectual, creative, and social connections with each other through events of interest at the University and in the communities served by the University. All Emeriti are encouraged to stay connected and to be active in the Emeriti Association.
In 2002, the Georgia State University administration suggested creating the GSU Emeriti Association, an organization that would connect retired faculty and staff who had been distinguished as Emeriti.
The Coordinating Committee, a group of emeriti professors representing each of the University’s colleges, facilitated the development of the Association, beginning with the writing of the ASSOCIATION BYLAWS outlining the terms of membership and the duties of officers and sub-committees.
In 2011-2012, the Association celebrated its 10th anniversary and changed from a Coordinating Committee to a BOARD. In 2016, the Emeriti Association welcomed emeriti faculty from Georgia Perimeter College as it consolidated with Georgia State University.
