Our premier annual giving program
What is the Chancellor's Circle?
Traditional resources available within a state university do not allow it to operate with the flexibility and dexterity that today’s competitive economy requires. Chancellor’s Circle Members equip the A-State Chancellor with financial and intellectual resources, enabling the Chancellor to look beyond tradition and lead us into the future.
“Every Red Wolf Counts. Our Chancellor’s Circle members are a vital component to our university. They are part of a network that makes all of us stronger.” – Kelly Damphousse, Chancellor
