The Michigan Tech Retired Employees Association's mission is to help you stay in touch with the friends you made while working at Tech, to keep you informed about campus activities and to provide volunteer and learning opportunities.  

Membership is automatic for all who retire from employment at Michigan Tech, including faculty, staff, and administrators, in addition to their spouses, partners, widows and widowers. Others with special connections to campus are welcome, as well. The intent of the Retiree Association is to be inclusive in its membership. There are no dues, membership in the MTREA is free.
