African American Alumni Affiliate (4A)

Two UC staff members present the Turner Scholarship

For over 20 years, 4A has served the university and its African American alumni to create opportunities for graduates to reconnect with each other, current students, and their alma mater. 4A accomplishes this through social programming, professional development, community service, and supporting our students through networking and philanthropy.

2021 Homecoming Events

The African American Alumni Affiliate will be celebrating Homecoming this year with several events to connect alumni back to each other and our alma mater. UCAA in-person activities will be provided under CDC guidelines and local COVID-19 restrictions, with the well-being of the UC alumni family remaining the top priority. Each experience will follow the venue's established restrictions and guidelines and we ask all event participants to follow the venue's posted recommendations.
