Alumni Chapters

UW Oshkosh Alumni Association chapters are all about sparking and growing UW Oshkosh pride. They’re about re-energizing involvement among enthusiastic alumni and University friends. And, most importantly, they’re about creating opportunities for social, cultural and intellectual connections.

All UW Oshkosh Alumni chapters support general University advancement and activities. Chapters also can be developed to support a specific college, department, major or extra-curricular organization.

 

What are chapters?

Alumni Chapters are informal alumni-driven groups whose goal is to create and facilitate networking and social opportunities with fellow alumni who share Titan pride.

Why start or join an alumni chapter?

Alumni Chapters are informal alumni-driven groups that receive communication and event support from the Alumni Association and the UWO Alumni Relations office. Each chapter is as unique as its members. Chapters host, at a minimum, one activity per year ranging from networking events to philanthropic activities, and from volunteering to local receptions.

But what’s in it for you?

Chapter advantages include an improved sense of connection to fellow alumni and the University, opportunities to share Titan pride and network both socially and professionally, and the chance to make a difference in your local community.

Through alumni chapters, hundreds of UWO alumni are engaged with the University nationwide. Alumni chapter volunteers provide leadership, organize events, welcome new students, mentor current students, support scholarships and offer many other activities to support UW Oshkosh. We invite you to be a part of our far-reaching network, an important component of UWO’s effort to reach all alumni.
