MUAA Mission

Out of gratitude for the education received at Millersville University and a belief in the value of public higher education, the Alumni Association is committed to continuous improvement of educational processes through its support to the University.

The Association promotes a meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas between the University and its alumni. And, through the diverse programs of volunteer services and financial assistance, the Association is committed to strengthening alumni relations in support of the University's mission. These include providing information about the University to alumni, encouraging and supporting Millersville's educational relationship with alumni, sponsoring a variety of activities of interest to alumni and providing alumni with opportunities for service to the University.

MUAA Goals

  • Communicate current, meaningful information about Millersville to alumni and friends of the University on a regular basis.
  • Increase participation in MUAA-sponsored programs in terms of numbers, geography and diversity.
  • Expand opportunities for alumni to maintain their relationship with one another.
  • Cultivate students so they will become active alumni.
  • Enhance and enrich the experiences of students through contact with alumni.
  • Elevate Millersville's reputation and raise its visibility in the local community.
  • Engage in an ongoing planning process to meet the needs of an ever-changing alumni body.

*The MU Alumni Association is governed by a board of nineteen directors who serve 2-year terms and meet four times annually. The board contains four officers --- a president, president-elect, secretary and treasurer. All officers are elected to 2-year terms by the board. In addition, the board includes appointed and approved chairpersons, one for each of the seven Alumni Association committees. The committees include: Financial Planning; Nominations and Awards; Student Advancement; Alumni Programs; Alumni Development; Information Technology and Lancaster County Branch. Board members who do not serve as officers or chairpersons are considered at-large members, and they are required to sit on one or more of the above committees.
