About the WUAA

“There’s a special connection between Bearcats, something I have discovered time and again. No matter the graduation year, I enjoy meeting my fellow alumni – and those who have yet to graduate. It is through the people of Willamette that I most deeply feel the connection to the university, so I’ll continue looking for ways to be involved.” – Adam DuVander ’01

The purpose of the Willamette University Alumni Association is to promote the interest of Willamette University and to establish and maintain life-long and mutually beneficial relations between each other, and between the University and its current and future alumni.

This is an organization FOR you and shaped BY you, with a multitude of ways for you to plug in. We look forward to your involvement in this vibrant lifelong community.
