KPU Retiree’s Association News

Keeping Connected over the Years

The Newsletter Committee publishes three newsletters of activities by KPU Retirees each year.

Current and Back issues can be found here:


We share a common vision and goals, from our constitution, to encourage fellowship among retirees by maintaining existing and promoting new friendships; to facilitate through the sharing of information, the continued engagement with the university, intellectually and in service; and to further facilitate the free exchange of information and discussion of topics of interest to members. Our active focus is to connect with KPU Retirees and their partners to keep everyone up to date on KPURA related activities.
