The University of Colorado Boulder Retired Faculty Association (UCBRFA) was specifically created in January 2020 for CU Boulder retired faculty. UCBRFA aims to facilitate successful retirement experiences for current and soon-to-be retirees, and encourage retired faculty members to remain actively involved in academic, educational, scholarly and cultural activities on the Boulder campus. The association is supported and funded by the Office of the Chancellor, the Office of the Provost and the Office of Faculty Affairs, and is closely allied with the Boulder Faculty Assembly (BFA).
Although the COVID-19 crisis caused plans for 2020 to be altered significantly, the UCBRFA transitional executive committee redirected their efforts to initiate a full slate of events for the spring 2021 semester: we have since launched a Distinguished Faculty Series that features some of our finest professors and their extraordinary scholarly work, facilitated a book discussion group, and are in the midst of organizing the Research Grant Awards Program.
