Alumni Center Update

In 2018, the Board of Trustees of the University of Arkansas approved the UAPB/AM&N National Alumni Association Board of Directors to launch a fundraising campaign to replace the existing Alumni House. In August of 2019, the campaign kicked off. After eight months of fundraising, we suspended the Alumni Center Campaign due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are pleased to announce the Alumni Center Building Campaign has resumed effective January 1, 2022.

The new building will be multi-purpose, housing the National Alumni Association staff and functioning as an income-producing facility to support the day-to-day operations of the Association and student scholarships and programs. The 10,000 square foot building, with furniture, fixtures, and equipment, will cost an estimated $2.8 million. Before suspending the campaign, we raised more than one half million dollars, and with the relaunch of the campaign, we plan to successfully reach our fundraising goal by the end of 2023. A booklet detailing the Alumni Center Building Campaign and giving opportunities is being mailed to alumni. If you do not receive your booklet in the next couple of weeks please contact the National Alumni Office.

UAPB/AM&N Alumni have previously demonstrated the ability to successfully raise money when there is a need. The new income-producing Alumni Center will keep pace with the most recent upgrades and improvements made on UAPB’s campus. It will enrich the lives of alumni, students, and the surrounding community for years to come. Please see the various giving levels listed in the booklet for you and your family to consider.

We are counting on you to support the Alumni Center Campaign to build a facility that is reflective of our Golden Alumni Pride. We can achieve this worthwhile project if each of us does our part.

Can we count on you?
