Emeriti College 

In celebrating the vital contributions of Emeriti Professors – both new and existing – the University has established the UWA Emeriti Professors College, ensuring the continuation and recognition of their meritorious and longstanding service to the University.

A valuable and continuing connection

The new College will become a highly valuable resource in supporting Emeriti Professors in transition into retirement. It will enable you to maintain a valuable connection with the University and to one another. We hope to provide opportunities to socially connect and to continue to promote lifelong learning amongst the College. Recognising that many of our Emeriti continue to engage with students and research, an early goal of the College is to provide a framework to assist in the continuation of research, teaching, and mentoring.

Check back regularly for updates, events and new opportunities to connect. For more information on getting involved with the College click here.

In celebrating this momentous achievement, the 2021 Professors Emeriti have been featured on the new UWA Emeriti Professors website, sharing their variety of experiences at UWA, significant achievements throughout their careers and where they are going from here.
