Board of Directors

In everything we do, we strive to connect and support UAF and its alumni. We encourage excellence in all aspects of the university and provide opportunities for alumni to engage in lifelong involvement with their university community. We could not do what we do without our Board of Director’s strategic guidance and support, and we hold ourselves accountable to you and them. This distinguished group of alum leaders invest their time, passion, and resources to support UAFAA, and for that we are thankful.
