Historical Note

In an effort to serve better the senior alumni of Eastern Michigan University and Michigan State Normal College, University President John Porter announced the establishment of the Golden Years Program in 1985. The Golden Years Program was developed by President Porter in the response to the need he perceived for the graduating classes of 50 years ago and more to stay in touch with the University and each other. The Golden Years Program is designed to serve three basic purposes; to enhance interaction and communication among senior alumni, to provide better communication to the University and the senior alumni, and to encourage senior alumni to consider way in which they could support the University and its students. Over time, the name of the program became the Gold Years Society.
