Alumni Affairs is an integral part of Prairie View A&M University and provides opportunities for alumni to stay connected to their alma mater free of charge. We work in collaboration with numerous departments to communicate messages to alumni that support the recruitment and retention of students, as well as fundraising goals. One of our objectives is to encourage alumni to keep their contact information up-to-date, so the university can share news, events, and networking opportunities. Another function of Alumni Affairs is to facilitate class reunions and homecoming activities and to build the relationship between the university and its alumni via events, awareness, programs, and publications. Alumni Affairs also acts a liaison among the Office of Development, PVAM Foundation, National Alumni Association, and various alumni chapters and University affinity groups.
