Historical Note

The Retired Faculty-Staff Association at the University of Texas was founded on April 18, 1982. The organization’s informal predecessor, the "Die? No, Sir! Club" (later named the "Dinosaurs" in 1954), was created for retired personnel in 1942.

The purposes of the UT RFSA, as stated in a preliminary memorandum to retired faculty, administration, and staff in the spring of 1982 are to provide opportunities for UT retired persons to remain more closely associated with University life; identify needs of retired members of the University community and initiate procedures to extend beneficial services to UT retired persons; and schedule periodic social events and facilitate friendships.
