WIU Alumni Association

About the Alumni Association

The WIU Alumni Association earned a Grand Gold Award for Overall Alumni Programming and a Gold Award for a Specific Alumni Program from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

Whether it is organizing a reunion, planning Homecoming activities, informing alumni of what’s happening at WIU, or spreading goodwill, the WIU Alumni Association plays a crucial role in continuing the partnership between the University and its more than 115,000 alumni and friends.

Everyone who graduates from the University is an automatic member of the Alumni Association. There are no dues or fees, and each year more than 50 alumni events are hosted in a variety of locations throughout the United States.
