Welcome retirees! The UCLA Retirees Association (UCLARA) is an active and vibrant community that provides opportunities to stay engaged with colleagues and with the campus. UCLARA monitors issues that might affect retirees, represents retiree interests to University administrators, and advocates for retiree benefits. Membership dues support our advocacy efforts and member activities. All UCLA retirees and active employees, as well as their spouses/partners, are welcome to join.
New! UCLARA Cookbook
The UCLARA Cookbook is here and can be found in the "Members Only" section of the website. Once you're logged in, you can view or download a copy of the cookbook in PDF format. It's full of ideas for food and beverages, from appetizers to entrees, baked goods to desserts.
For 2022-23, two campus groups have welcomed retirees as mentors: ACE (Advising Communities of Excellence) and ProShare, a program of the Administrative Management Group. Learn more.
UCLARA Member Benefits
Join Us on Facebook
UCLARA has a group Facebook page! Joining is easy, but the group is private so you do need to request membership. Go to the UCLARA Facebook page. Click the bar that says “Join Group." That sends your request to the Group Administrator. Once approved, you will be notified when you log on to Facebook. Then you can add your "likes" and comments.
UCLARA receives invaluable administrative support from the UCLA Emeriti/Retirees Relations Center (ERRC), a campus department that provides the connecting link between UCLA and its retirees. The ERRC offers educational workshops, publicizes volunteer opportunities and provides resource referrals. Sign up now for ERRC's twice-monthly email updates.
