Alumni Association

Alumni chapters have been established around the globe to keep everyone connected to Kansas Wesleyan.  The chapters meet at different times based on the groups themselves.   Each chapter has a representative on the Alumni Council.  The Alumni Council meets quarterly where university news, events and issues are discussed and the allocation of grants to a variety of projects occurs.  Each council member provides a report for their area, including upcoming alumni events, or questions/concerns, and reports university news and events back to their chapter group.  Becoming involved in an alumni chapter is a great way to stay connected to KWU. Interested in starting an alumni chapter or hosting a gathering or event in your area?  Contact Sylvia Sawyer in the alumni office at (785) 833-4339 or email at
