The UC Davis Retirees’ Association (UCDRA) recognizes and honors the service of staff members, both active and retired.
The UCDRA grants a career enhancement award to UC Davis employees who are furthering their education. The UCDRA partners with Staff Assembly to choose the recipients and process the awards. This grant is funded by the "25 for 25" endowment campaign launced in 2014 in recognition of the association's 25th anniversary.
The UCDRA honors members for outstanding service to the association, additional community service, contributions to UC Davis during employment, and "innovative problem-solving and advocacy activity of benefit to UC Davis retirees" each year.
