Retirement need not mean the severance of ties to the university and colleagues. The Retirees Association (ETSURA) provides the opportunity to continue a meaningful relationship with the university and with other retirees by acting as a communication conduit, providing social contact and services to the university and its constituents. All retired employees and their spouses and spouses of deceased employees are eligible for membership. In addition, former employees with five or more years of service at the university who are retired from other institutions or businesses are also eligible for membership with their spouses.
