The Northwestern Emeriti Organization engaged in a self-study in order to identify opportunities to engage and enhance participation of faculty emeriti in the University's missions. Read the complete self-study HERE. The NEO also invited an outside expert, who specializes in college and university retirement organizations, to help advise on future plans and direction of the NEO organization. The outside consultant took a careful look at NEO's history, structure, governance, activities, University support, and connections with members in order to formulate specific recommendations for the organization.

In addition, there is a possibility of one or more committees being appointed in the coming months based on the future goals of the Northwestern Emeriti Organization.
