Walter Price, President
From the President
Over recent years, the African-American Alumni Chapter at UT Arlington has worked to reconnect and strengthen African-American alumni involvement and support in various ways through the Alumni Association. With the support of fellow African-American alumni, faculty, staff, and students and the Alumni Association, this chapter is headed towards excellence.
As an alumnus of UT Arlington, I realize alumni involvement is critical to the university's continued success. So many of us have achieved great measures of success because, of our relationships with faculty/staff, friends, social organizations, community leaders, and involvement in other areas of campus life. Now is the time for us to come back and empower, encourage, and motivate anyone with African decent within the University community (undergraduates, graduates, alumni, faculty, and staff).
As president of the UT Arlington African-American Alumni Chapter, I am committed to planning social, cultural, and educational events to benefit the African-American university community and surrounding community. However, we won't be successful without your help. Your active participation and support will ensure we achieve as much success as the other alumni chapters on campus. Your input and ideas will provide us with valuable information that will be used to plan events that appeal to your interests, whether they are networking events, student mentoring opportunities, community service, social activities, and much more.
I encourage you to become involved in the African-American Alumni Chapter. If you live or work in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, please plan to attend an upcoming event and the next chapter meeting.
I look forward to working with you as we work together to heighten a greater appreciation of The University of Texas at Arlington and what it has to offer, while enhancing the quality of life of African Americans and the surrounding community.
Be A Maverick!
Walter Price, '85
President, African-American Alumni Chapter
