Alumni Association Council

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 the goal of two representatives on the Alumni Council.  The Alumni Council meets quarterly where university news, events, and issues are discussed. 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 Michelle Dolan in the Alumni Office by phone at (785) 833-4338, or by email at [email protected]
