Founded in 1995 by alumni and friends of the University of Arkansas Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences (DBCAFLS), the society is a chartered organization of the Arkansas Alumni Association.
The society operates under the guidelines of a constitution and bylaws approved by the Arkansas Alumni Association.
The society's mission is to promote communication and friendship among alumni, faculty and friends of Bumpers College by providing a forum for information exchange through organized events and other activities.
