Our purpose is to create a worldwide community of alumni through opportunities for meaningful engagement.

We foster pride, participation and philanthropic commitment to Ashland University.

Upon graduating from Ashland, you become a proud member of the Alumni Association, with no dues to pay. You share a common bond with a group of 50,000 individuals who know the “Ashland Experience.” The friends you made, the stories you lived out and the growth you experienced—all of it combines to solidify your lifelong connection to Ashland.

Update Us

Class Notes...the first pages everyone flips to when they get their Accent Magazine! Ever wonder how to get your milestones highlighted there? Share good news with your Ashland classmates through Class Notes. Use the button below to access the form to Update Us.

Ensuring your information is updated is a great way to stay engaged with the University and fellow alumni. For example, we want to ensure you’re receiving the latest issue of the Accent Magazine so you’re always connected. Or, if you’re celebrating the birthday of a child or grandchild, it might be time to ask us if they are enrolled in the Future Eagles Legacy Program. And if you’re planning out your calendar, ensure your information is correct in our system so you won’t miss even one moment of what we have planned for Homecoming this year.

Future Eagles Legacy Program

The Future Eagles Legacy Program recruits and recognizes children, stepchildren and grandchildren of Ashland alumni.

As part of the program, legacies are recognized at birth and again on their 5th, 12th, 16th and 17th birthdays. When children, step-children or grandchildren apply to Ashland University, they will receive a $1,000 legacy scholarship, which is renewable by maintaining satisfactory academic progress.

In the 2019-2020 school year 220 legacy students enrolled in classes at Ashland!

Honor a person you know who is making a difference in the world!

At Ashland, our focus is on the individual. One way we celebrate individuals is to recognize achievement across a broad spectrum of career paths, ages, relationships to the university and callings to serve both in our community and across the globe. This is what the Alumni Awards is all about.

For example, every year we give four awards recognizing professional achievement and service to others. One of these awards celebrates alumni under the age of 36 who are making a significant impact in the world.

Was there a professor who changed your trajectory, nominate them for the Dr. Glenn L. Clayton Award. Know someone who is not an alumni, but has lived out the values of Ashland University? There is an award for that too.

An alumni award is the perfect way to honor a person whose story has set the stage for your own. Learn more about the individual awards below—and then nominate someone today!



Mission Statement: The mission of the Ashland University Alumni Association is to engage alumni with Ashland University where "Accent on the Individual" is a lifelong experience.
