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.


Current Events:

C-Cubed  (Conversation, Community, Collegiality) Luncheons are held Thursdays and Fridays each week, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm in MUB B001. All faculty and staff, along with their guests, are invited. Attendance has been about 25 each day; with your help, we can get to 35 or even 40, a number that makes the program sustainable. We suggest you make it the highlight of your week.

The menu this week includes:

Thursday, February 26:
Chicken salad croissants
Avocado and white bean wraps
Broccoli cheese soup
Warm carrot salad with spiced cashews
Friday, Feb. 27
Tomato and cabbage tabbouleh salad
Falafel with white bean yogurt sauce
Lemon chicken and orzo soup
Pita bread

Lunch is $10 (cash and credit both accepted); attendees may bring their own lunch instead of purchasing the buffet. Coffee, tea, ice tea, cookies and fruit will be available. Please come and help make this community-building initiative a success.
