WU Alumni Association

In representing and serving more than 25,000 Willamette University alumni from around the globe, the Willamette University Alumni Association (WUAA) - with the support of the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations - aims to establish and maintain a lifelong connection with alumni, as well as current students.

The WUAA continues to make a concerted effort in assisting alumni in all areas of life – professionally, as well as socially. With invaluable resources, such as the Career Network, alumni and students from all walks of life and from any part of the world have the ability to network, learn from others and take major strides in their career development.

With the impressive array of resources at your disposal, there are countless ways to get involved. Stay connected with fellow classmates, friends and faculty by attending regional events and annual reunions, by participating in our renowned Travel Program, or simply by becoming a volunteer. Even after graduating from Willamette University, every alumnus will remain a Bearcat for life, and with the help of the Alumni Association, will forever have the opportunity to grow and shine as individuals and as a united group of one.
