Northwestern Emeriti Organization (NEO)

Providing Advocacy and Programs, Promoting Ties to the Community



Get Involved

NEO brings together emeriti from all parts of the university who don’t always know each other. Our website has a feature designed to remedy this. If you go to the Emeriti Member’s page you will find personal, informal bios of a few of your fellow emeriti. If you enjoy reading them, take a moment to write one yourself using this form.
