About the Association

The objectives of the UCD Retired Staff Association are:

  • To ensure that members continue to be an integral part of the UCD community
  • To provide a focal point for cultural, educational and social activities
  • To provide space in the Maurice Kennedy Research Centre (MKRC) to facilitate research
  • To promote independence and the use of members’ talents for the benefit of UCD

The Association (UCD-RSA) has evolved from the activities of the Maurice Kennedy Research Centre (MKRC) which was established in 1988 as a centre for staff to continue academic and community interests after retirement.

The Association is open to all retired staff of the University in receipt of a pension from the University.
