The mission of UHCAA is to unify and build a coalition of supporters whose goal is to increase resources for the university and the community. UHCAA is on a quest to promote philanthropy from the African American community. We seek to strengthen the relationship between alumni, students, and the university while reuniting former athletes and friends. The organization was established five years ago and through the diligence and commitment of some of its legendary founders, including current UHCAA President: Audray McMillian (former NFL pro), the organization has experienced unprecedented success for a newly formed alumni group. The first of its many accomplishments included a historic football game between UH and Grambling, featuring the world famous Grambling band at the half-time show. UHCAA partnered to establish the Initiative Scholarship Fund (with charter alumni such as Clyde Drexler, former NBA pro, among others) and generates the majority of its contribution through the annual Golf Challenge. Notable DFW distinguished UH alumni include: Senator Royce West, Robert Newhouse (former Dallas Cowboy), Gerald McElvy (President, ExxonMobil Foundation), and Gina Miller (CBS Sports).
