Interested in starting a chapter in your area?

Chapters must be approved by the AU Office of Alumni Relations. Expectations for chapters can be found in the chapter manual. Each alumni chapter is expected to:

• Have at least one alumnus/a committed to serve as a Chapter Leader volunteer
• Have at least two named volunteers to help with events and promotion (as a Co-Leader and a Planning Committee member)
• Plan at least two events per year that serve different purposes (i.e. athletic, community service, career/networking, family-friendly, etc.)

Alumni Relations staff members are always interested in helping alumni launch new chapters where there are groups of interested Eagles! Contact Jessica Tanca at to discuss launching a new chapter in your area.

Interested in serving as an Area Representative?

In regions with a small population of alumni, area representatives serve as the local resource for potential and current AU students, as well as alumni. Area representatives work with university staff members to augment outreach efforts in their region and assist with any alumni programming that might take place in the region through marketing and attendance at the events. To volunteer as an area representative or to learn more about the program, contact Jessica Tanca at
