Alumni Council

The Alumni Council represents all VWU graduates by serving as advocates for the University. Members volunteer their time each year, actively participating in networking events, regional socials, Homecoming and Family Weekend, and generating ideas to increase the overall alumni participation rate of giving to the University. The Council's goal is to provide leadership as alumni and to connect, participate, champion and support Virginia Wesleyan University.
