President Letter

President_NAAShaw Family,

I am both honored and humbled to serve as the president of the National Alumni Association of Shaw University for the 2016-2018 biennium. Our mission is simple: Connect, Give, Recruit and Retain for the advancement of Shaw University. We will accomplish our mission through a renewed emphasis on strengthening our chapters, creating programs to attract and retain members, re-energized fundraising campaigns, and providing support and resources to recruit and retain the best and brightest students for Shaw University. Here's how you can help:


Our chapters are the lifeblood of our organization and work best when you are connected and engaged. Your membership at the national and local chapter level ensures you are fully involved and have access to the information and resources you need to do your part in supporting the goals and objectives of the Association. Find more information here to join the Association and locate a chapter near you.


Annual giving is an important part of our responsibility as alumni. Our gifts ensure that Shaw remains competitive and provides a world-class education for our students. Your gifts are not only financial in nature. Your time, ideas and advocacy are also vital to ensure the continuation of our legacy. Click here to donate your gift to Shaw or donate your time by joining a committee.


We are committed to recruit the best and brightest for Shaw; however, the work doesn't stop there. We must have initiatives and programs to provide support for our students and instill the desire to not only join, but remain a part of our Shaw University family. Donate your time or gift to support scholarship programs and young alumni initiatives to make that a reality.

Our Association is filled with opportunities for you to give back and our mission to Connect, Give, Recruit and Retain is at the core of everything we do. With your help, we can achieve our goals and ensure our shared success, making certain our Alma Mater remains second to none.

All for Shaw,
