National Pre-Alumni Council

The UNCF National Pre-Alumni Council (NPAC), the student component of the National Alumni Council, serves as the umbrella organization and governing body for each Pre-Alumni Council (PAC) on UNCF-member college campuses.

The NPAC was founded in 1958 by Dr. Walter Washington, an alumnus of Tougaloo College, who felt that it was imperative for students to understand and learn early their responsibilities as alumni of historically black colleges and universities. The NPAC provides leadership for PAC students who are elected to serve on the NPAC Board and encourages student participation in alumni activities prior to and after graduation.

The PACs exist to stimulate the interest and participation of students enrolled at UNCF-member institutions to preserve and create further loyalty and fellowship between the colleges and universities, their faculty, staff, students and alumni. 

PACs also raise money to support UNCF and its mission. All students enrolled at any UNCF-member college or university are encouraged to join their respective PAC.

Students who are elected to serve on the National Pre-Alumni Council board are given leadership responsibilities and encouraged to participate in alumni activities prior to and after graduation.

They also raise money for UNCF so that UNCF can continue to help more students get to and through college. Students who serve on pre-alumni councils are charged with stimulating the interest and participation of students enrolled at UNCF-member institutions in order to preserve and to create further loyalty and fellowship between the colleges and universities, their faculty, staff, students and alumni.

All students enrolled at UNCF schools are encouraged to become members of the National Pre-Alumni Council.
