Message from President Marc Tessier-Lavigne

Main content start

Welcome to The Emeriti/ae Council website for Stanford University. This website has been created by and for Stanford’s Emeriti/ae, with the goal of enhancing access to the vast intellectual and social resources of this university, which our Emeriti/ae helped to build.

The prospect of retirement can be daunting for those of us who have lived our lives as scholars and teachers. Stanford’s more than 700 Emeriti/ae have significant experience and insight to share with others who have retired or are approaching retirement. On this website, you’ll find practical information about retirement, as well as resources for staying involved with Stanford and our university community.

Our faculty are at the heart of the intellectual life of our university, and I want to personally thank you for your service to Stanford University. Throughout your careers, you have educated new generations of students, advanced discovery, and applied knowledge in world-changing ways. We are incredibly proud of your remarkable accomplishments, and we are grateful for your ongoing involvement with the Stanford community.

With best wishes,

Marc Tessier-Lavigne
