Be our guest at UAA's largest alumni tradition! Hosted by your UAA Alumni Association, Homecoming Luncheon provides an opportunity to celebrate alumni as they reconnect with their alma mater. More than a fundraiser, Homecoming is a cornerstone celebration of UAA alumni, promoting lifelong connections between students, alumni and your Hometown U.

In collaboration with the Anchorage School District, this year's theme is partners in education, and will feature alumni sharing their stories of the importance and value of an Alaska education and the critical roles we all serve in providing educational pathways to our next generation of leaders.

This year's presenters include keynote speaker Cal Williams, Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters ’22, community activist and past president of the Alaska chapter of the NAACP, as well as guest speaker Brad Hillwig, M.B.A. General Management ’10, founder and CEO of Greatland Studios.

Net proceeds of Homecoming Luncheon support the UAA Alumni Scholarship Fund. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact the Office of Alumni and Community Engagement or Julia Martinez, director of alumni and community engagement.
