Welcome University of Michigan Retirees

Iconic features of all four campuses

The University of Michigan Retirees Association (UMRA) helps retired U-M faculty and staff remain connected to the university and with one another. UMRA works to promote and ensure that retiree interests and concerns are recognized and considered by the University.
