About the UFV Alumni Association
The UFV Alumni Association began April 1, 2001 and has been growing steadily ever since.
The Association’s purpose is to foster lifelong relationships between alumni and the University of the Fraser Valley through advocacy, support, service and communication.
All UFV alumni will proudly identify as active and integral parts of the UFV community and be meaningfully connected with each other and their communities.
The UFVAA will empower alumni:
- To mentor and connect with other alumni through social and professional relationships.
- To collaborate with UFVAA, UFV, other alumni, and the communities in which they reside.
- To celebrate the diversity of the UFV alumni.
- To champion alumni successes and the value of UFV alumni status.
- To access personal, professional, and academic resources through UFVAA partnerships, programs, and events.
- To support fellow alumni, future alumni, and UFV, with time, treasure, and talent.
