Often considered a first point-of-contact at the UA, the Arkansas Alumni Association, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to connect alumni, friends and students to the University of Arkansas. The Association is housed in the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House which is strategically situated on campus across from Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Beginning with its founding in 1878, the Association has played a significant role in campus growth, marshalling financial support, establishing scholarships, providing inclusive alumni programs and encompassing students as future alumni. Traditional fixtures such as Homecoming, the UA Foundation, the Annual Fund, the University Ring and privately funded scholarships originated with the Association. The Association is advised by a 33-member Board of Directors, which provides input on alumni policies and programming. In addition, the Association reports to, and is a part of, the UA's Division of University Advancement.
