National Alumni Board

The National Alumni Board (NAB) helps the Alumni Relations staff in its mission to connect all generations of the UP family through ongoing teaching and learning, faith and formation, and service and leadership, seeking to inspire a life-long community connection with the University.

The NAB and the Alumni Relations staff work together to build creative, collaborative, and supportive relationships between the UP campus community and all graduates in all locations. To help accomplish this, NAB members serve as members of the Mission & Messaging, Giving, Recognition, and Survey committees.

In addition to advocating for the needs and interests of our alumni to the University administration, the National Alumni Board also gives back to future alumni by awarding annual scholarships to senior students.
