Retiree Center Staff & Board Members

The WSU Retiree Center strives to provide educational, social, and service opportunities for retirees in the campus community. 


We offer a variety of continuing education and intellectual enrichment opportunities for retirees, ranging from short courses on computers to classes on different contemporary topics of academic interest.


Maintaining and enhancing social relationships is an important aspect of retirement and a key goal of the WSU Retiree Center.


WSU Retirees preserve bonds with the extended community of retirees that supports the mission and builds a multi-generational WSU campus.

An important goal of the Retiree Center is providing extensive service to the University.
