Together again. Donna Falvo, on April 4, at her last meeting, led our first in-person gathering in two years.

Welcome to the RFA

Established at UNC in 1986, The Retired Faculty Association was organized to help members maintain meaningful connection to the University community through intellectual engagement, representation, and advocacy.

     We continue in that mission. All retired faculty, professional staff, and administrators at UNC are welcome to join. In addition, faculty retiring from other academic institutions are eligible to join as non-voting members. RFA provides opportunities for professional networking and academic connections and serves as an organized voice and communication channel between retired faculty and UNC administrative offices, providing support and advocacy for RFA members’ interests and concerns.

RFA maintains an active voice in the University community, with two RFA representatives on the Faculty Council as well as RFA member liaisons who participate in a variety of University initiatives and provide input as institutional issues and concerns evolve. Throughout the year, the RFA conducts a variety of events, programs and activities that promote intellectual as well as social engagement.
