Welcome EWU Retirees!

The EWU Retirees Association is an all-inclusive organization open to retired faculty and staff who worked at Eastern, and others. Our members enjoy good times and camaraderie while making a positive impact on students through the EWURA Golden Eagle Scholarship.

We Invite You to Join the EWURA

Joining the EWU Retirees Association (EWURA) is a great way to stay connected while engaging in fun and positive activities. Membership dues are affordable at just $25 a year for retirees and an additional $15 a year for partners and spouses. Visit our Join Us page to learn more.

Join Us to Make an Impact

EWURA members are dedicated to making a difference for hardworking students at Eastern Washington University. The EWURA Golden Eagle Scholarship Fund has provided more than 40 awards to help undergraduate students over the years. We contribute through membership dues, money raised by the Golden Eagle Golf League and special fundraisers.

Connect at Presentations and Gatherings

Connect with friends old and new during our EWURA presentations and special events. Meetings feature guest speakers who share expertise in topics ranging from the political climate in the Middle East to the history of our national parks. Special annual events include a music concert, a holiday party and breakfast with the university president.

Third-Thursday presentations are held most months during the academic year at 205 Monroe Hall on the EWU Cheney Campus. Social time with coffee and baked goods runs 9:30-10 a.m., followed by presentations from 10-11 a.m.

Upcoming Guest Speakers

We are ushering in a new lineup of presenters for 2024:

March 21: “The (Mis?) Adventures of a Cosmic Ray physicist” by Robert (Bob) Gibbs, PhD, retired EWU physics professor.

April 18: Come and enjoy a program of live music performed by some of Eastern’s talented musicians. Social time with refreshments begins at 9:30 a.m.; concert begins at 10 a.m.; Recital Hall | EWU Music Building.

Invitation to President’s Annual Celebration for Retirees!

The annual President’s Breakfast has been reinvented to be more user-friendly for soon-to-be retirees who are still working and for retirees who worked early mornings for their entire careers and prefer to connect in the afternoon.

On Thursday, May 9, join us from 2-4 p.m. in the PUB NCR for an event that recognizes new retirees and welcomes retirees of all ages to enjoy a program, appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages. The event will also include booths with resources and opportunities for retirees.
