Emeritus Students of College of Marin (ESCOM) is designed to serve the unique needs of older adults who are dedicated to the principles of quality of life, lifelong learning, and personal growth. Emeritus is an integral part of the College of Marin.

Basic to Emeritus is the concept of democratic decision making and planning using the talents and judgment of its members to enrich their own lives and to contribute to the community.

Emeritus is organized so that its members may learn and develop through study, clubs and auxiliary activities offered by the College of Marin.
