The CWU Retirement Association (CWURA) is a vibrant group of individuals who enjoy the opportunity to explore more leisurely pursuits, while continuing to participate in the CWU community. The CWURA provides many ways of doing so, including informal gatherings, educational and pleasurable excursions, lectures, and informational programs for retirees.

COVID-19 Updates & FAQs

 

CANCELLED - CWURA Brewery Tour of the CWU Craft Brewing Research Lab scheduled for March 19, 2020

Due to concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, Central Washington University is taking the precautionary step of canceling the CWURA Brewery Tour. This decision was not taken lightly and follows consultation with public health officials regarding social distancing for preventing the spread of the outbreak.

Should it be possible, we will do everything we can to try to reschedule this event to a future date.

Thank you for your understanding.
