Biographical / Historical

The Association of Retired Rice University Faculty (ARRUF) is a multidisciplinary community of full and associate members drawn from all ranks of Rice University faculty and their families. Retired Rice University Faculty automatically become members, and their spouses and partners are associate members. Faculty members who are participating in the phased retirement program are associate members also until they fully retire. Retirement is defined as having been employed for ten or more years and having reached an age that, combined with the number of years of service, equals or exceeds 65. Spouses and partners continue as associate members even when the principal member is deceased. Created by the approval of Provost Marie Lynn Miranda in 2016, ARRUF offers new opportunities but also a new challenge. The Provost inspired members to acknowledge Rice as the site of many of their most significant experiences and scholarly endeavors. The Academic Memoir Project is intended to consolidate accounts of faculty experiences. Source: ARRUF website, accessed March 19, 2020.
