Alumni Council


The Alumni Council members are critical to ensuring UA Foundation successfully fulfills its mission and develops into a mostly alumni driven, successful, and sustainable organization. The Alumni Council works to enable and encourage the entire UA alumni base to have a positive impact in terms of social and community engagement. The Alumni Council serves as a key group that:

  • advises UA Foundation on its alumni and student programs
  • develops events and opportunities to foster connections between alumni and each other as well as the greater UA alumni community
  • serves as the official alumni ambassadors to both UA Foundation and UA


The mission of the University Academy Alumni Council is to support and advise UA Foundation to advance the personal, academic, and professional goals of UA students and alumni, connect UA alumni to each other, contribute to the effectiveness of UA Foundation, and represent the greater UA alumni base in the community.
