The Office of Alumni Relations offers a variety of programs to keep you informed and involved in campus life and provide you with opportunities to enhance your legacy of “Truth and Service.” We plan and implement special events, especially Homecoming, to help you stay connected to your alma mater and Eagle alumni.
Eagles, Let's Talk
The "Eagles, Let’s Talk" program was established to spark meaningful conversations among NCCU alumni, students, and friends of the university for the purpose of forming stronger ties to the NCCU community. These events will also serve as a mechanism to engage alumni in a more meaningful way.
Through the program, alumni are invited to serve as hosts who will identify other alumni in their network of family, friends, and colleagues to invite to an Eagles, Let’s Talk event. At the event, the hosts share information about current university opportunities and activities and help spread the excitement that being an engaged Eagle can bring.
The Office of Alumni Relations needs you to help us reach and engage the 30,000+ alumni in our database! If you are interested in hosting or attending an Eagles, Let’s Talk event, please contact our office at 919-530-6363 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Forty Under Forty Alumni Awards Program
The North Carolina Central University Forty Under Forty Alumni Awards Program recognizes young alumni who have made a lasting impact in their communities and the world. The Office of Alumni Relations developed the program to engage, re-engage, educate, honor, and develop the next generation of advocates, donors, and ambassadors for NCCU.
Graduates under the age of 40 are selected by a committee of their peers, with support and assistance from the University. Selected honorees are recognized for their significant contributions in the arts, entertainment, healthcare, sciences, education, law, business, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, public service, and government. Congratulations to the 2020 Forty Under Forty class. To learn more about the honorees, click below:
The North Carolina Central University Pre-Alumni Council (PAC) was created to promote student connection and affinity for the university pre- and post-graduation by cultivating early philanthropy through council activities, special events and education of our future alumni. Its mission is to instill in students the importance of engagement and giving as well as the power they have to make a continual impact on the university's growth long after graduation.
PAC is dedicated to fostering lifetime commitment to Eagle Pride through vigorous engagement of the student body. This organization grooms young Eagles to become effective alumni after graduation through fellowship with other students, faculty and staff as well as forging meaningful connections with current alumni now. The Pre-Alumni Council educates students on the impact of donor generosity by promoting a culture of gratitude, truth and service. PAC hopes to create generational philanthropy, one young Eagle at a time. Any currently enrolled student can become a member. If interested, please contact our office at 919-530-6363 or by email at email@example.com.
Reunions remain a special time for classmates to connect, relive their campus days and create lasting memories. In this new year of promise and possibility, we look forward to you returning to the sloping hills and verdant green of North Carolina Central University. We hope to celebrate you in-person this year as we welcome you back to our beautiful campus. Additional details regarding the day of the celebration will be forthcoming.
