Penn Association of Senior and Emeritus Faculty
The mission of PASEF is to initiate, conduct and coordinate activities that encourage retired faculty members to continue to be active, contributing participants in the intellectual and social life of the University and to maintain connections among themselves and with their colleagues who are not retired. Such activities include organizing lectures, discussion groups, and social functions that provide fellowship and interaction among members and with the scholarly community on campus; familiarizing members, especially those planning retirement, with issues relating to retirement benefits and retired life; and promoting opportunities for members to render service to the University and its surrounding community.
