What are the Pacesetters?
The Pacesetter campaign is a tradition at Arkansas Tech University. Every year, the
Pacesetter committee educates students about the importance of giving back. Look around
you: the campus and the community that you are now a part of has been made better
by those who came before you and made gifts to the Arkansas Tech Foundation.
As we continue to build for the future by building on the foundations of the past, graduates who wish to give as part of the class gift may do so online here or by returning this form.
What are the Loyalty Pacesetters?
The Loyalty Pacesetters is an honored group of alumni who have made a gift to Tech every fiscal year since graduation. Your first gift will begin your association with this prestigious society.

Why should I give?
Alumni, parents, and friends of the University provide support each year to fund scholarships, academic programs, and more. As you prepare for graduation, the Pacesetter campaign will give you the opportunity to thank them for their generosity – and take part in a standing tradition that will benefit the Tech students who follow you. Here are why some of your classmates chose to be a Pacesetter:
