The Cheyney Alumni Association met for the first time on commencement day in May 1862. The association proved to be very active during its early years, taking on projects of significant social and economic importance. Being acutely aware that education was perhaps the best means at the time to help eradicate prejudice against their race, the members set up a project that involved determining the number, location, and condition of all black schools in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware and Ohio.
The Cheyney University National Alumni Association is proud to recognize the academic achievements, community and university involvement, and outstanding potential of current and incoming students by offering a few scholarships each year to qualified candidates. The Cheyney University National Alumni Association and its chapters help students reach their academic goals by awarding scholarship funds annually.
The Cheyney University National Alumni Association (CUNAA) Public Relations Committee publishes a bi-annual newsletter called, The Spirit, which highlights Alumni Chapter events, scholarship initiatives, and individual Cheyney Alumni achievements. The newsletter is printed and each edition is made available online. YOakleyPR has worked with the CUNAA Board of Directors to support the production of the newsletter by providing graphic design and copy editing services since 2013.
