The Virginia Union University National Alumni Association Incorporated’s (VUUNAA) mission is to reclaim and maintain members, recruit students to Virginia Union University (VUU), cultivate leadership among the alumni and support the mission of VUU. It is a consortium of alumni chapters and affinity groups in different geographic locations that share the same collective efforts to unite and support the alumni of VUU.
The first alumni directory was published in 1983 during the presidency of Mary Redd-Nelson, who was also a member of the Board of Trustees. VUUNAA became a non-profit 501(c)3 and established an Endowed Scholarship under the leadership of N. Scott Phillips. The VUUNAA logo was implemented under the direction of Michael McCrimmon.
