Alumni Council

The principal purpose of the Alumni Council is to strengthen the bond between our graduates and Virginia Wesleyan University—its students, faculty, administration, and Board of Trustees. We value the Alumni Council's role in advocating for VWU and offering support for the enrollment and advancement programs of a growing, dynamic institution.
