Kennesaw State University Retirees Association
The Kennesaw State University Retirees Association gives retired employees opportunities to stay connected with colleagues and keep up with campus news and events. This volunteer-based outreach to retired KSU faculty and staff from both the Kennesaw and Marietta campuses is coordinated through the Office of Development. The Association was formed in 2009 and has grown to over 400 members.
Since its inception in 2009, the Association has hosted many social events, educational activities and opportunities for service for retirees of KSU. Photos and stories about many of our activities can be found through our Photo Gallery and Newsletters pages. For more information about our upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, visit the “News and Events” link, "like" us on Facebook, check out our latest newsletter or join our e-mail list.
The KSU Retirees Association is a member of the national Association of Retiree Organizations in Higher Education (AROHE) as well as the Georgia Association of Higher Education Retiree Organizations (GA-HERO). Through these connections, we stay up-to-date on the latest trends in opportunities and services for retirees in higher education.
Our retirees have been generous in their support of the University and its students. We have created two scholarship funds for students who are descendants of KSU or SPSU retirees. Our annual fund depends on donations each year while our endowed scholarship fund will provide scholarships far into the future. Through donations as well as fund-raising activities, we have provided scholarships to over 20 students who are children, grand-children or great-grandchildren of KSU or SPSU retirees.
