Who are our members?   

Retired Faculty/Staff

Similar to Alumni Associations, these organizations serve retired faculty and staff, support their campuses, and represent retiree interests.

Retiree Centers & Emeriti Colleges

Centers and emeriti colleges are ampus-funded units that serve as the connecting link between the campuses and their retired faculty and staff.

Campus Departments

AROHE members include units such as academic affairs, advancement, HR, and alumni relations that support all phases of faculty and staff retirement.


Individuals who are interested in developing retirement organizations in higher education are welcome as members.

    AROHE will never sell or give your personal information to sponsors or partners without your expressed permission. This permission is typically done as a part of an event registration where members and registrants "opt in" to receive email notices from a partner or sponsor. In this case a member or registrant's email address is provided to the sponsor or partner.
