APSU National Alumni Association

The APSU National Alumni Association operates under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors which meets semi-annually to discuss new ideas and vote on services and programs for alumni.  The decisions of the Board are carried out daily by the Alumni Relations Office.

APSU Alumni Engaging Across the Country

Over 100,000 individuals call APSU their alma mater. These alumni have laid the foundation for this institution and have brought much honor and distinction to this community. We are proud of our alumni and all they have provided and continue to do to support APSU. Over the past 10 years, the National Alumni Association has grown from 16 alumni groups and chapters to over 35 alumni constituent groups. Alumni are spreading awareness across the country and letting their communities know why they are proud to “Be a Gov”!

The enclosed map highlights APSU alumni populations across the country.  We are proud of our alumni and all that you continue to do to support your alma mater. Thank you!
