Membership Program Changes

In 2017, we are expanding the UNI Alumni Association to all UNI alumni and discontinuing our dues-based model. Our goal is to be more inclusive by offering programs and services for all Panthers. This will take our alumni membership from 7,000 to more than 113,000 members.

As an organization, we have dedicated ourselves to creating a continuum of involvement for alumni. Nationally, alumni organizations of all sizes are shifting toward similar universal memberships that emphasize engagement over fees.

As a current member, you have made a strong commitment to UNI. Your passion has helped us build the program to the level where we can now actively engage all alumni and better serve the university overall.

What does this change mean for you? For now, your membership continues to function as usual, with the full list of restaurant, hotel and entertainment discounts. After August 2017, membership in the Alumni Association will be free and the list of member discounts will be phased out at that time. All alumni will have access to our programs, events and services.

Thank you for your commitment to the University of Northern Iowa. We look forward to this new chapter of the UNI Alumni Association and we appreciate your support of this initiative.
