UC’s Student Alumni Council is an organization that fosters stronger relationships between students and alumni - assisting the UC Alumni Association in staging events and marketing UCAA donors, boosting the student body’s Bearcat spirit, and encouraging alumni involvement with students prior to and after their graduation.
SAC members work with the UC Alumni Association staff and volunteers at Homecoming, Sibs Weekend, Alumni Weekend, UC Day Celebration, Bearcat Blitzes, Commencement, Freshman Convocation, and alumni reunions. This important student participation enables alumni to better understand undergraduate life at UC, and helps the students to better appreciate alumni’s vital role in maintaining UC’s success. SAC also assists with events sponsored by the Young Professionals, UC Foundation, UC’s various colleges and university departments. SAC’s participation enables alumni to better understand undergraduate life at UC, while the students better appreciate the vital role played by alumni in maintaining UC’s quality and traditions, and helping to ensure its future.
In addition, SAC plays an even larger role in such key university events as the annual Crosstown Helpout community service day held in partnership with Xavier University, Sibs Weekend, and "banner nights" at football and basketball games to help build a greater sense of community at UC.
The Student Alumni Alumni Council Creed
We believe that as students, we have a special relationship with our Alma Mater that represents a lifetime commitment in the fulfillment of our dreams and aspirations. As students, we are the focus of her goals and objectives. As alumni, we will represent the result of her mission and the embodiment of her spirit in the world. What she is, we are: what she becomes, we become. Because we are the emerging essence of our institution, we will strive to enhance this special relationship between students, alumni, and others so that the heritage of our Alma Mater will always be a part of our lives, for the present as we follow our dreams, and after graduation as we make them come true.
