Wisconsin Alumni Association Advisory Council

WAA Alumni Advisory Council

The Wisconsin Alumni Association is a division of the Wisconsin Foundation & Alumni Association (WFAA), which supports the programs and services of the Wisconsin Alumni Association and the UW Foundation.

The WFAA is governed by the members of its board of directors. To learn more about WFAA and our board of directors, please visit advanceuw.org.

The alumni of the WAA Alumni Advisory Council are committed, enthusiastic volunteers whose advice, ambassadorship, and insights are invaluable to the activities of the Wisconsin Alumni Association.

The council encourages engagement, outreach, grassroots support, and lifelong commitment and involvement among Wisconsin’s more than 400,000 alumni. As it celebrates the value and achievements of alumni, the council seeks to maximize “Badger-to-Badger” global connections, seek feedback, and nurture alumni involvement that helps to ensure the UW’s ongoing success.
