UW Alumni Association Strategic Plan


Tracing Our Roots

Only four years after the first class of 14 students graduated from the University of Wyoming in 1891, graduates at that time recognized the importance of establishing an organization to nurture alumni relationships.

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association (UWAA) formed on March 26, 1895 with eight graduates in attendance and two weeks later on April 15, 1895 adopted the first official constitution and bylaws to “promote the University interests and the affiliation of its graduates.” The leadership wasted no time in generating interest and enthusiasm for the UWAA by holding an annual meeting and banquet in the Ladies’ Study Hall on June 20, 1895. Thanks to the initiative and foresight of these few alumni, the UWAA was launched and the mission remains the same as established 122 years ago. More >
