Welcome to the Boston College Association of Retired Faculty Website

Message From the Association President


Welcome members and guests to the website of the Boston College Association of Retired Faculty (BCARF). With the encouragement and support of the Academic Vice President and with the endorsement of the University President, BCARF started operations in 2002.  At every step of the planning process, the declared interests and wishes of retired faculty have remained the foremost consideration. 

We hope this website will help us continue to maintain a dialogue with all interested faculty, help you get to know us and to solicit and encourage your input and participation. 

Please enjoy looking through our website.  Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.

If you have any questions about the Association of Retired Faculty, please feel free to send me an email.

Thank you.

Jean O'Neil
