Retired Faculty/Staff

The Kent State University Retirees Association (KSURA, formerly the KRFA) is a group of retirees who desire to:

  • Continue their involvement with university colleagues;
  • Stay informed about Kent State programs, research and service initiatives, creative projects, travel and volunteer opportunities; and
  • Keep members updated on any changes to pensions, health care or other benefits provided through the state retirement systems (especially OPERS and STRS-OH).

The KSURA meets 9-10 times a year and the meetings are open to all retired Kent State faculty, staff and their spouses. Most meetings are monthly on the 2nd Wednesday afternoon in the Kent Free Library (or other location as announced).
