Arkansas Alumni Association
“As University of Arkansas student growth continues, the Alumni Association is working to increase student support through scholarships, memberships* and the senior walk tradition.”
- Jeff Johnson (B.A. ’70), Alumni Past President and Alumni Campaign Committee Chair
*A portion of each alumni membership directly supports student scholarships.
Often considered a first point-of-contact at the UA, the Arkansas Alumni Association seeks to connect alumni, friends and students to the University of Arkansas. Since 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.
Total Goal: $16,000,000
