Message from the Vice Chancellor

Welcome to the Office of University Relations and Development web page!

The Development Office Team is here to assist alumni, friends and supporters of UAPB in contributing to the university and its deserving students.

The need to fulfill the historical mission of UAPB creates the need for more scholarship dollars to assist students in need of financial support. Every gift and any amount will make a difference. In addition to scholarships your contributions will help to support faculty development, the library, athletics, extracurricular activities as well as many academic programs that enrich learning at UAPB.

Whether you support scholarships for students in dire need, provide funding for the university’s highest priorities, or endow funds that that will assist deserving students and enhance the institution by supporting its students we welcome the opportunity for you to take part in making GREAT things happen at UAPB!
