DAYTON INTER-ALUMNI COUNCIL OF UNCF

The Dayton Inter-Alumni Council (DIAC) is a member of several constituent groups of the National Alumni Council (NAC). The NAC is a UNCF sponsored organization of concerned graduates, current students and individuals who want to advance the cause of black higher education. 

 

The DIAC and NAC's mission is to:
 

  • Raise funds for UNCF's member colleges and universities.

  • Recruit students for UNCF member institutions.

  • Encourage cooperation among black alumni groups and friends of black higher education.

  • Provide a forum for education issues.

  • Stimulate public awareness and interest in UNCF colleges and universities.

 

The DIAC was chartered at the 57th UNCF National Alumni Council Conference on January 23, 2003. Initiated by Mary Tucker, other founding members of the DIAC were Dr. Giovanni Bonds, M. Alice Callier, Anita Conway, Fred Conway, Judith Crawford, James Magwood, Margie Marcellus, Atty.

IN FUNDS RAISED FOR CFNAC in 2019

Hosted the James E. Stamps Awards Breakfast, April 14, 2018 at the Sinclair Community College. The DIAC recognized and celebrated two local stalwart supporters of Education and the leadership development with young people. They were Dr. Gladys Turner-Finney and Dr. Willie J. Washington. Each honoree shared their inspirational perspective on why Wilberforce University matters personally, historically, and professionally.

 

DIAC also partnered with churches in our community to honor the legacy of minority education. Churches were asked to make a contribution to UNCF as an investment in young people who are first in their families to attend college as an avenue to break the generational curse of poverty. The late Rev. Dr. Robert E. Jones (Huston-Tillotson University) chaired the initiative. The UNCF Sunday Program was held on April 29, 2018, at the St. Luke Baptist Church. The UNCF Sunday Program raised $3,050.00. On March 31, 2019, the UNCF Program was held at Dixon United Methodist Church and it raised $3,500.00.
