Welcome, Alumni and Friends!
The University of Akron is grateful for the generous support of alumni, friends, corporations and foundations it receives to achieve its goals. The support enables the University to fund scholarships, fellowships, professorships, campus renovations, new facilities and much more.
The department mission is to strengthen and advance the relationships between the University and its alumni, friends and students. It is through these connections that the University and its constituencies are enriched and supported.
Support of the University's mission, whether in the form of a gift or by continued involvement with UA, yields an unparalleled return on investment for our many benefactors. Often, through these lasting relationships, alumni and friends of the University deepen and enrich their ties to UA and to the students the institution serves.
We invite you to explore the many opportunities that UA has to offer to our alumni and friends!
