The purpose of this association is to facilitate support of the
University of Iowa by retired faculty and staff members and to promote
the interests and welfare of those retirees. We strive to help retired
members of the University and their spouses, widows, widowers, or
domestic partners keep in touch with each other and with the social
and intellectual life of the University.
At present, more
than 600 UI retirees and their spouses or domestic partners belong
to the UIRA.
Programs are offered monthly September through June, including
a picnic in June and an annual banquet in April. See Programs
and Events for a full list of programs offered.
