The Office of Alumni Relations serves as a liaison between The University of West Alabama and its many alumni and friends. It is our mission to develop relationships and establish lifelong connections between the University and its alumni and friends, leading to increased support for the institution’s missions and goals. Successful relations are the result of the strategic and deliberate cultivation of alumni as leaders, volunteers, advocates and donors for UWA.
We sponsor and coordinate various activities that are designed to foster communication and engage alumni, including but not limited to regional alumni chapter events, alumni reunions and Homecoming. Alumni Relations works with the National Alumni Association's Executive Council to coordinate the selection and awarding of Alumni Achievement Awards, Emerging Leader Awards, as well as other alumni honors.
Alumni Relations is part of the Office of Institutional Advancement, which also includes the Development Office and Office of Public Relations. The Alumni Scholarship Program is also managed by Alumni Relations. Applications are taken starting the latter part of the year prior to the award year. The office is also responsible for the LEAD program which is Livingston’s Early Alumni Development. Our aim is to help current students learn what it is to be an alumnus while they are still in school.
