WHO WE ARE
The Association of Retired Faculty (ARF) consists of retired faculty and EPA professional staff from North Carolina State University. The organization was founded in 1983 to share common interests and to maintain an organized Association with the University.
The Association of Retired Faculty (ARF) seeks to promote the general welfare of its retired faculty, of the University and society in general. The Association offers retirees a continuing link with the University, as well as opportunities for social gatherings, stimulation of the mind, and service to NC State.

THE FRIDAY AWARD
THE FRIDAY AWARD
The Friday Award, named in honor of Emeritus President Friday is given annually to an individual chosen by the ARF Board. It was awarded the first time in May of 2010 to President Friday himself. The Award recognizes exemplary accomplishments and contributions made during retirement. Service in retirement activities that go beyond the continuation of one's prior professional career will be emphasized. The nominee may come from either retired members of the NCSU community or other retirees with distinguished service who may not have been affiliated with the University. The award may be made posthumously and more than one may be made in a given year.
