Who Are We?

Graybackers is an organization of mostly Creighton University retirees who gather four times a year for camaraderie, food, entertainment and educational talks.

The organization began in 1987, when Rosemary "Ro" Reeves, secretary to a succession of Creighton University presidents, retired. She was chagrined to lose her connection to friends and the university.

After meeting with key personnel at Creighton and studying other universities' similar organizations Ro founded the Graybackers. Registrar Emeritus Jack Williams, who chaired the bylaws drafting committee and suggested the name Graybackers, became the organization's first president.

Since its founding, Graybackers has held four meetings a year every year. The format is: a social hour, lunch at different venues, a speaker and a brief business session.

Are You Eligible to Join?

In addition to official Creighton University retirees, membership in Graybackers is open to any former member of the University's faculty, administration or support staff who worked at the University at least half-time for at least 10 years and who is not employed full-time anywhere. Part or all of the University employment may have been in the form of contributed service.

By special action of the Board of Directors, a person may be granted membership even though not meeting the above qualifications.

Wives and husbands of deceased members may become Associate Members. They pay half dues and enjoy all membership privileges except voting and serving as officers or directors.

Dues are $15 a year per person, except as noted above.

Membership fees cover routine operating costs and they also may subsidize a portion of the costs of lunches and picnics.

There are currently more than 170 members, with membership growing yearly. You can join.
