Chapter Leader Handbook

Chapter Leader Handbook

Local alumni chapters have been an integral part of the Wisconsin Alumni Association® since the first chapter was founded in 1900 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Chapters remain vitally important in supporting an international network through which alumni can stay engaged and connected and can give back to the university.

The mission of Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) chapters is to:

  • Welcome: be accessible, hospitable, and responsive
  • Connect: serve as a social and professional hub
  • Support: encourage alumni to support the UW
