WAA Alumni Advisory Council

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

The council encourages alumni 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 alumni feedback, and nurture alumni involvement that helps to ensure the UW’s ongoing success.
