My Fellow Alumni,
As the President of the Virginia Union University National Alumni Association (VUUNAA), it is my desire to improve communications with the Union family by keeping them informed on what is happening at the University. I believe when you keep the lines of communication open between Alumni and the University, Alumni are more apt to financially support the University and participant in University sponsored events.
Virginia Union University has a rich tradition and history, which has produced and will continue to produce many outstanding leaders and scholars around the nation. It is my goal to build on that tradition. We need to go “Back to the Future”, exemplify that rich tradition we had and bring it into the future. Remembrance of our history is a tradition, by reflecting on the stories and rituals of our history will make our beloved institution future even stronger.
The VUUNAA has three tenets: “Raising funds for the University, Recruiting students to the University and Reclaiming our Alumni” which is the driving force in the association. I urge you to support our alma mater by becoming a member of the VUUNAA and/or a local Alumni Chapter. Membership information can be found by contacting the VUUNAA or Office of Alumni Relations. Additionally, you can show your support by coming back for Homecoming, Founders Day events, football and basketball games, volunteering on campus, mentoring students, or any of the many activities on the campus.
Finally, you can show your support by making financial contributions to the University. Whether it is $5.00 or $50,000, every dollar is important. Your financial support will ensure current students and future students will have a quality education and be technically competent to become the leaders of tomorrow.I look forward to seeing you on campus.
Michael McCrimmon ‘82
