Alumni Advisory Council

Welcome! The UAFS Alumni Advisory Council strives to engage alumni and strengthen participation for the roughly 45,000 living UAFS, Westark, and Fort Smith Junior College alumni.

Mission Statement

The UAFS Alumni Advisory Council strives to recruit and retain active members to support and advise the Alumni Engagement Office on matters to serve, connect, and create engaging opportunities to enhance the lifelong experience of UAFS Alumni.


Alumni are selected by a nominating committee made up of existing Alumni Advisory Council members. This is a rolling application, meaning that you can apply year round. Application review begins in February and selections are made by April each year. If you'd like more information, please email the alumni office.
