MN Sports Alumni Unite

Alumni, donors, and friends of the University of Minnesota (UMN) athletic teams have united to form the Minnesota Athletics Alliance (MAA), in partnership with the American Sports Council.

The MAA aims to unite all UMN student athletes, “M” winners, alumni, coaches, parents, and others to stand up and advocate for a broad based athletic program as one of many avenues the UMN has to deliver on its educational mission to meet the diverse needs of the communities across the state.

The MAA alumni groups from Track, Tennis, and Gymnastics have offered to fund the cut programs, and each team had endowments in place at the time of their termination by the UMN.
