The National Pre-Alumni Council (NPAC) serves as the umbrella organization and governing body for each Pre-Alumni Council (PAC) on UNCF member college campuses. The NPAC, the student component of the National Alumni Council, was founded in 1958 by Dr. Walter Washington, an alumnus of Tougaloo College. He felt that it was imperative for students to under-stand and learn early their responsibilities as alumni of historically black colleges and universities.

The NPAC provides leadership for PAC students who are elected to serve on the NPAC Board. The PAC encourages student participation in alumni activities prior to and after graduation. The PAC also raises monies for UNCF.

The purpose of PACs shall be to stimulate the interest and participation of students enrolled at UNCF-member institutions in order to preserve and to create further loyalty and fellowship between the colleges and universities, their faculty, staff, students and alumni.

All students enrolled at any UNCF-member college or university are encouraged to become a member of their respective PAC.
