Paving the Way
The enthusiasm and generosity of our alums keep the UA spirit strong across generations.
UA alumni are a part of the vitality and ongoing life cycle of the University – opening doors, charting new directions, transporting the UA spirit out into the world. Choose a level of giving – and perhaps an area of particular passion – for your tax-deductible contribution.
A focal point at the center of campus, Alumni Plaza honors all the alumni of the UA. Naming opportunities are available to honor friends, memorialize family or provide yourself with a place to see your name in perpetuity on campus. The UAAA Campus Bench program also provides this opportunity throughout campus and a resting spot for all those who visit campus.
The Alumni Association is the keeper of the "institutional soul" not only by connecting, engaging and nurturing Wildcats for Life, but also by helping to instill the traditions and heritage of the University to current students. Gifts to support the heritage and traditions class enrich the student experience by providing one-on-one mentoring and guidance to students from the teaching assistant and professor.
From networking events to game-watch parties to academic lectures, the UAAA brings the UA to you. And many chapters give back to the UA through their scholarship programs. Your gifts to your local chapter are part of the more than $1 million in scholarships that the UAAA distributes annually.
