The UNMC Retiree Association was formed in the fall of 2016.

  • The mission of the UNMC Retiree Association is to offer a platform for continued and meaningful communication and engagement between the University of Nebraska Medical Center and its retired faculty, staff, and alumni.  
  • As one facet of a purposeful retirement, some retirees welcome opportunities to maintain their support of UNMC through contributions of time, talent, and a deep reservoir of institutional knowledge.
  • The UNMC Retiree Association provides opportunities for former colleagues and alumni to maintain social and professional ties.
