UAA Alumni Association: Here for you

The UAA Alumni Association is a nonprofit 501c3 organization working to CONNECT, ADVOCATE and SUPPORT the University of Alaska Anchorage.

While we are a separate entity operating independently of UAA, we are affiliated and work closely with the University and its Alumni Relations office to achieve our mission.

The Association is led by a 15-member Board of Directors, which is comprised of a diverse group of UAA graduates who volunteer their time and talents to help lead the Association.
