Your membership provides 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, rallies for all football games and some 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.
The association works with affiliated organizations and other campus offices to coordinate activities for alumni and students who share similar interests and experiences.
The Faculty-Alumni awards focus on the achievements and vital relationships 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 for special projects, thanks to the Faculty Development Incentive grants. These grants support quality faculty projects that otherwise would not be funded by the university.
In 1911, Athletic Director Chester Brewer issued a call to all alumni to “come home” for the Missouri-Kansas game, and more than 9,000 Mizzou alumni packed into Rollins Field. Thousands of alumni and friends still “come home” to Mizzou each year for the oldest and one of the largest Homecomings in the nation. For current information, please call toll-free 1-800-372-6822.
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 daylong conference.
Mizzou Legislative Network
MLN informs interested alumni about legislative issues that affect MU and higher education.
This four-color magazine is mailed three times a year to keep alumni informed about events at Mizzou, in and around Columbia and in the lives of their friends and classmates.
Each year, the association honors the graduates of 50 years prior as Gold Medal alumni and also supports affinity group reunions to help Tigers reconnect with each other and their alma mater.
To help top-quality students attend MU, the association’s Alumni Scholars program provides scholarships: three at-large scholarships, one international scholarship and one scholarship on behalf of each chartered alumni chapter and school or college alumni organization.
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.
The Tiger Walk welcomes freshmen with a walk through the Columns toward Jesse Hall to symbolize their entrance into the university. For a brochure describing this and many other Mizzou traditions, please contact the association.
Founders’ Celebrations pay tribute to the founding of the university on February 11, 1839 and are held throughout the month of February by alumni chapters worldwide.
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.
