The mission of the SOU Retirees Association is fourfold:
1) To provide a campus "home" as a point of contact for retirees.
2) To promote social interaction among all retirees through events, council representation, a newsletter and a website.
3) To provide campus events to encourage a continuing relationship between SOU and association membership and to promote ongoing intellectual stimulation and activities.
4) To provide opportunities for the university to use talents of retired faculty and staff to the benefit of the University and retirees, including knowledgeable advocacy.
The current Council consists of 15 retirees who are elected during spring by a vote of the membership. One-third of the council is elected annually. At least eight members shall be SOU Emeritus faculty.
Council members meet at least quarterly to facilitate on-campus events and assist in the production of a newsletter. The Conferences and Senior Programs Office provides a contact person and funding for the Retirees Association Council activities.
