Join an alumni chapter and reconnect with your friends and former classmates. Alumni chapters support scholarships, student recruitment and community service. To join an alumni chapter, you must be a current member of the UCA Alumni Association.
Young Alumni Chapter
The Young Alumni Chapter (YAC) connects young UCA alumni with the university and other alumni through various events and programs. A vital link to growing and strengthening the UCA Alumni Association, the YAC identifies and addresses the needs of alumni who have graduated within the past ten years, or are 35 or younger. YAC provides personal and professional development, social networking and leadership opportunities, while emphasizing programs and services that match young alumni’s priorities. The YAC keeps young alumni active and engaged through social activities, personal and professional development, Mentor Connection, philanthropy and volunteer opportunities.
Band Alumni Chapter
The UCA Band Alumni Association was established in 1979 to encourage former UCA Band members to attend the UCA Homecoming game and renew old friendships. Current activities include organizing the UCA Alumni Band during the UCA Homecoming, tailgate activities, and fundraising for the various UCA Foundation Band Scholarship funds. Membership is not limited to UCA graduates, but is open to any former UCA Band member. The UCA Band Alumni Chapter also provides an annual newsletter which keeps Band Alumni informed about UCA Band events and provides a forum for individual Band Alumni news. The UCA Band Alumni website is : https://www.facebook.com/groups/ucabandalum/
Black Alumni Chapter
Chartered in 2013, the University of Central Arkansas Black Alumni Chapter was established to develop and maintain more intimate relations between the UCA community and African-American alumni. This chapter is designed to promote the welfare of Black Alumni through social and professional activities that will allow members to network and connect with one another. As a newly established entity the Black Alumni chapter is dedicated to membership growth and financial stability that will establish a strong legacy for UCA Black Alumni. Membership in the Black Alumni Chapter will keep Black Alumni connected to the UCA community, and provide members a place to call home when they return to UCA for Homecoming and other university events.

The Teachers and Educators Alumni Chapter was founded in 2004. The purpose of the chapter is to promote the welfare of alumni and friends of the UCA College of Education and to perpetuate and broaden the ties between the university and its constituency members. Bi-annual meetings of the chapter coincide with Homecoming and Spring Commencement. Membership is open to all former students, graduates, and current/retired faculty members of the UCA College of Education and to all former students and graduates in education related fields from ASTC or SCA.
Honors College Alumni Chapter
Since 1982, the Honors College has promoted a community of learners practicing the arts of inquiry, conversation, and collaboration. We sought to test ourselves and our ideas in the public square, and to embrace as partners others encountered in the same quest. Building upon this tradition, the Honors College Chapter calls upon our peers to revitalize their commitment to the Lively Experiment. We hope to rejoin the conversation by renewing our bonds with the faculty, students, and alums of the UCA Honors College. Some of our activities include: book club, participation in the Sophomore Lecture Day, fall retreat, Homecoming Day activities, evening High Table lectures, online community, newsletter, day trips, and many informal dinners.
ROTC Alumni Chapter
In July 2009 the UCA ROTC Program established an alumni chapter that would embrace the support of graduates, former students and friends. The mission of the chapter is to support the Bayonet Battalion and the University of Central Arkansas in the areas of need, such as, recruitment, retention, leadership, training, public relations, communications, fund raising and related matters; to create a network of UCA alumni and friends as a service group to have continuity among the supporters. Membership in the ROTC Alumni Chapter will provide a mechanism of support necessary to maintain an active ROTC unit on the UCA campus; secure military scholarship funding for ROTC students; and promote communications and social activities with fellow ROTC students, alumni and friends.
Nursing Alumni Chapter
Established in 2011, UCA Nursing Alumni Chapter promotes the welfare of its alumni and friends by stimulating and encouraging an active interest in the university’s programs that promote nursing and well being and encouraging participation in projects, programs and events designed to provide mutual benefits for both the University and its constituents.
