Arkansas Alumni Association Mission
The Arkansas Alumni Association, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to connect alumni, friends and students to the University of Arkansas. Often considered the point-of-contact, the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House is strategically situated on campus across from Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
Beginning with its founding in 1878, the Association has played a significant role in campus growth, marshalling financial support, establishing scholarships, providing inclusive alumni programs and encompassing students as future alumni. Traditional fixtures such as Homecoming, the UA Foundation, the Annual Fund, the University Ring and privately funded scholarships originated with the Association.
The Association is governed by a 33-member Board of Directors, which sets alumni policies and programming. In addition, the Association reports to, and is a part of, the UA's Division of University Advancement.
The Arkansas Alumni Association connects and serves the University of Arkansas Family.
The Arkansas Alumni Association will be nationally recognized as a model alumni relations program.
