Mission Statement

UVA Student Alumni Council logo

The Student Alumni Council seeks to enhance the UVA student experience by providing engaging events and programs, fostering meaningful relationships among fellow students and alumni, and strengthening students’ overall bond with both the University and the Alumni Association.

Key SAC Programs

  • Hoos Coming for Dinner: Local alumni in the Charlottesville area partner with the SAC to host students for dinner and conversation.
  • Alumni Speaker Series: The SAC helps identify speakers to participate in the Alumni Association’s monthly Alumni Speaker Series and determine industries and topics that would be valuable to students’ professional development.
  • Swag Wagon: Each semester, Student Alumni Council members drive a “swag wagon” around Grounds, handing out Alumni Association swag to students.

The SAC also enhances the overall student experience at signature Alumni Association events, including support of Bingo Nights, Study Breaks, and more. Members also assist the Alumni Association with social media content creation and in planning fun giveaways and popup events!
