Letter from the Alumni Director

The Countdown to Homecoming

Elizabeth UnderwoodWe're counting down the days to our next Homecoming here at UNC Asheville, February 22-23, 2019, and adding up the many ways to reconnect with alumni throughout the year. And there are so many of you! Our UNC Asheville Alumni Association (which welcomes all alumni with a free membership immediately following graduation) now totals more than 19,000!

Our dedicated group of alumni leaders are committed to strengthening the lifelong bond between our graduates and our university. Previously this group was known as the National Alumni Council, but the board recently voted to transition to a board structure in order to better serve you, the members of our Alumni Association.

Now, the newly established UNC Asheville Alumni Association Board of Directors will work through committees that will focus on alumni connections, student engagement, and engaging in philanthropy. All alumni can volunteer to serve on any of these committees without being a board member. We hope you will consider doing so.

We also want to make sure you know who the board members are, so we’ve shared a detail from each one in these pages. See the highlights of our time at UNC Asheville and let us know what we’ve missed!

There are many ways for you to get involved and support UNC Asheville, both in person or from a distance. Please visit our website: alumni.unca.edu for a list of opportunities, and you can always contact the alumni office directly at 828.251.6852.
