UNCF National Alumni Council

Founded in 1946 by Fisk University alumnus James E. Stamps the mission of the National Alumni Council (NAC) of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) is to support, promote, influence and strengthen Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).  The foundation of NAC's mission is a commitment to work with UNCF to ensure its network of member institutions are a respected model of best practices in moving students to and through college.

In support of UNCF and its mission the NAC will:

  • Increase individual contributors and contributions from alumni to their alma maters.
  • Increase individual contributions to UNCF.
  • Maintain a strong communications network between alumni of UNCF member schools.
  • Disseminate information of vital importance to the life and well-being of HBCUs.
  • Provide volunteer assistance to local UNCF campaigns through Inter-Alumni Councils and Pre-Alumni Councils.
  • Inform the general public, prospective students, and funding sources of the value of HBCU alumni to civic improvement and community progress.
  • Encourage recent graduates to become active members of their respective alumni associations.
  • Develop and pursue other goals relevant to strengthening and expanding the contributions of HBCUs and HBCU alumni.

The NAC serves as the umbrella organization for Inter-Alumni-Councils, the National Pre-Alumni Council and National Alumni Associations. Other organizations also subscribe to UNCF's mission as at-large members.

All graduates of UNCF schools are automatically members of the National Alumni Council.
