Your association membership will provide support for the following programs on behalf of the University:

Alumni Association Student Board (AASB)

AASB members attend alumni events, conduct an annual membership drive, help coordinate events for student members of the association and provide the perspective of "alumni in residence."

Alumni Athletic Events
The association sponsors Tiger Tailgates and rallies for all football games and some selected basketball games with special pricing for all MAA members. With the athletic department, the association co-sponsors the Mizzou Tiger Caravan each spring in which Mizzou coaches travel around the state of Missouri.

Diversity Programs

The association works with affiliated organizations and other campus offices to coordinate activities for alumni and students who share similar interests and experiences.

Faculty-Alumni Awards
The Faculty-Alumni awards focus attention on achievements and on the vital relationship between faculty and alumni in promoting the best interests of the University. The association also recognizes outstanding teaching with the Distinguished Faculty Award and meritorious service with the Distinguished Service Award. Contact the association for nomination forms.

Faculty Incentive Grants

Faculty at Mizzou can apply for funding of special projects thanks to the Faculty Development Incentive Grants. These grants support quality faculty projects that otherwise would not be funded by the university.

Homecoming
In 1911, Athletic Director Chester Brewer issued a call to all alumni to “come home” for the Missouri-Kansas game and over 9,000 Mizzou alumni packed Rollins Field. Thousands of alumni and friends still “come home” to Mizzou each year for one of the oldest and largest Homecomings in the nation. For current information, please call toll-free (888) 292-MUHC.

Leaders’ Weekend
Alumni return to Mizzou each Fall for a weekend of leadership activities and fun! Campus leaders present the state of the University and interact with alumni. Volunteers share ideas, tour the campus and renew their involvement with MU during a day-long conference.

Mizzou Legislative Network
MLN informs interested alumni about legislative issues that affect MU and                            higher education.

MIZZOU Magazine
This four-color magazine is mailed quarterly to MU graduates and association members to keep them informed about events at Mizzou, in and around Columbia, and in the lives of their friends and classmates.

Reunions
Each spring, the association welcomes back graduates of 50 years ago and Gold Medal alumni (graduates of more than 50 years) to renew friendships and reconnect with their alma mater.

Scholarship Program

To help top-quality students attend MU, the association’s Alumni Scholars Program provides three at-large scholarships, one international scholarship and one scholarship on behalf of each chartered alumni chapter and school/college alumni organization.

Student Recruitment
Bright, dedicated students are the lifeblood of Mizzou, and alumni are committed to recruiting the best. “Tiger Trackers” contact applicants to answer questions and encourage their enrollment.

Tiger Walk

The Tiger Walk welcomes freshmen with a walk through the Columns towards Jesse Hall to symbolize their entrance into the University. For a brochure describing this and many other Mizzou traditions, please contact the association.

Time of the Tiger – Founder’s Celebration
This annual celebration honors the 1839 founding of the University of Missouri and showcases Mizzou’s current successes. Founders’ Celebration is usually held in February and includes a campus reception coupled with an athletic event. Alumni chapters worldwide also host concurrent events.

Tourin' Tiger Program

Throughout the year, Tiger alumni and friends take their Mizzou spirit around the globe on more than a dozen cruises and land tours. For a current schedule, please contact the association.

Volunteer Awards Program
The Tiger Pride awards and Mizzou G.O.L.D. awards recognize three alumni for ongoing leadership and service through the association or any of its organizations. These awards are presented each fall at the annual Leaders Banquet in Columbia.
