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. Monthly meetings during the academic year provide an opportunity for UMRA members to socialize with their colleagues and see interesting presentations.

Get Connected. Feel Connected. Stay Connected.

UMRA Reads … Want to Join

On Wednesday, April 21 at 3:00 PM (EDT), UMRA will hold an informational meeting for anyone interested in joining the new UMRA Book Club.  The UMRA board has been exploring ways to launch special interest groups to connect members with shared interests. A book club seemed like a good place to start.

No matter your passion, no matter your genre, join the discussion and help us launch this new initiative. Sharon Grayden will facilitate the April 21 Zoom session. Use this link to join the session https://umich.zoom.us/j/93478901678.
