Veterans Alumni Club

Welcome to the Veterans Alumni Club Page!

Our mission is to support the unique needs and interests of our veteran population by fostering and encouraging them in their endeavors through the establishment and maintenance of contact between UA alumni, students — present, former and prospective — faculty, and administration. Ensuring UA continues to provide the finest in higher education, teaching, research and public service. This mission will be accomplished through direct involvement by alumni in coordinating and promoting a diverse set of educational, community and public service, cultural, athletic-related, networking and social activities for alumni, student veterans, donors and friends of the UA.
