CUCRA Retiree Survey is Now Available


This survey is sponsored by the Council of UC Retiree Associations (CUCRA)*; the UCRRA and all retiree association at each UC campus, laboratory, the UC Office of the President, and the seven UC campus retiree centers.


The purpose of this first systemwide survey is to benefit staff and non-Senate academic retirees by documenting their post-employment activities and contributions. Your responses to the survey will be used to:

  • Help the UC Office of the President, and campus and laboratory administrators have a better understanding of the many contributions made by retirees,
  • Enable CUCRA, retiree associations, and retiree centers to advocate more effectively on behalf of UC retirees,
  • Provide retirees with comprehensive information about their collective contributions and achievements, and
  • Assist the UCRRA create and improve programs for retirees.

The survey is intended to complement the recent survey of UC’s emeriti faculty that was reported in the August issue of New Dimensions. Because the emeriti survey is conducted every three years, this survey of staff and non-Senate academics will also focus on the most recent three-year period, July 2013 to the present.

Reporting of Findings

We plan to present the survey’s findings in a written report that will be presented to key administrators in the President’s Office and at each campus and laboratory. The report will also be made available online to members of retiree associations and other interested parties.


Ten respondents to the survey will be selected randomly to receive $100 gift cards. If you decide to enter the optional drawing, you will be asked to provide your name and email address so winners can be contacted.

Confidentiality and Security

The officers of the CUCRA will keep your individual survey responses confidential. Your identity and individual responses will not be reported in the survey’s findings or any report published from those findings. All survey responses will be stored on a computer-server that is physically secured and uses all hardware and software safeguards to prevent hacking.

Office 365 - Impact on UCR Email Accounts

A University-wide migration from on-premises Exchange email accounts to the Microsoft’s cloud-based collaboration suite called Office 365 has begun.  Computing and Communications (C&C) has evaluated the efficacy of deploying cloud based email, calendaring, and various accompanying collaboration tools. Migrating our email services to the cloud will allow UCR the ability to maintain and improve upon our existing enterprise email and collaboration tool offerings, without requiring us to invest heavily in upgrading our infrastructure to meet our campus' growing needs.

As part of this migration, UCR email account holders will need to configure their email accounts to accommodate this migration. To receive help with this configuration:

Please note: If you previously had a UCR email account, it may have been suspended until the email account has been reconfigured.
