Retired and Former Faculty and Staff Organizing Committee

The Retired and Former Faculty and Staff Organizing Committee works independently and with the School to provide opportunities for retired and former faculty and staff to stay connected with each other and the Sidwell Friends community. Additionally, the committee compiles tributes written by colleagues in recognition of each retiree’s contributions to the School community. Membership is open to all Sidwell Friends retirees and former faculty and staff members who join by sharing their contact information with the committee when they leave the School. If you have not yet joined this group and would like to be invited to its annual luncheon and book club and to receive information directly from the group, please contact the assistant director of class and affinity programs, who will connect you with the committee members.
