Our Mission

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association’s mission is to foster a spirit of loyalty and fraternity among graduates and former students and to promote the general welfare, development, achievement, and honor of the university. 

Message from the President

As we approach our spring board meeting in Cheyenne on April 10-12, I want to provide a brief update on our strategic planning process.

The UWAA Board embarked upon a comprehensive strategic planning process in April 2013.  We conducted a meaningful project by examining every area of our operations to establish the blueprint for engagement with our alumni for 2015-2020.

We are committed to preserve the traditions of the association while identifying strategies to implement the necessary changes to optimize resources (financial, staff and other) to better engage our alumni and meet your expectations in the future.  In addition, our goals, objectives and strategies are in alignment with the University of Wyoming’s priorities. Much of the April 2014 board meeting will be focused on finalizing the implementation strategies to execute the plan over the next six years.

The final plan will be posted on our website subsequent to the April meeting. At this meeting, the board will consider two issues that may require amendments to the Bylaws. In compliance with our Bylaws, we are providing official notice to our membership here.

If you have any comments or questions regarding this proposed change to share with the board, please email and one of our board members or staff members will respond to you promptly. Your comments will be presented for consideration at the April 2014 board meeting.

Thank you for taking an active part in your UW Alumni Association. 



The University of Wyoming Alumni Association 23rd Annual Scholarship Dinner and Auction, presented by Infinity Power and Controls, is slated for 6:00 pm Friday, April 11 at Little America in Cheyenne. The proceeds from the evening will be used to fund UW student scholarships awarded by the Alumni Association.  

The support of Scholarship Club members and auction attendees allows UWAA to provide four-year scholarships and single year awards to more than 50 deserving students with a commitment of over $100,000 annually.  UWAA has awarded more than $1,500,000 in scholarships since 1980 and the program continues to grow. Scholarships valued at $1,500 per year are awarded to Wyoming, out-of-state residents, undergraduate and graduate students. New awards have been added to support more Wyoming community college transfer students, veterans and underrepresented multicultural students.

Highlights of the evening include entertainment by the UW Jazz Quartet, UW alumni solo artists, scholarship recipient’s recognition, a silent auction including student art pieces and a “quick-draw” auction featuring Wyoming artists.   Live auction items include a Wyoming Whiskey Barrel & Lid, guided fishing excursion on the Bighorn River, Wildcatter club seats, one-of-a-kind art work and a vacation trip to an RCI resort.  View all the items, artists and performers here. 

UW alumni and friends interested in attending the auction can purchase tickets online here or by calling (307) 766-4166. 



UW Alumni Association Strategic Planning Framework 

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association has completed its Strategic Planning Framework for 2015-20. Our priorities are in alignment with the expectations and priorities of the university. Between now and April 12th, we will develop the implementation strategies to accomplish these goals. This plan will provide the blueprint for the UWAA to become a premier alumni association positioned to effectively serve UW, our alumni, and students. We invite all alumni to provide feedback on the plan at Our alumni will play a key role in the accomplishment of the goals that will be presented in the strategic plan.
