Events

UWAA strives to keep alumni connected with their alma mater and other alumni. Each year, we coordinate events from Washington D.C. all the way to Washington State! These events give attendees valuable opportunities to connect face to face with other Wyoming alumni - sharing stories from their student days and of life since graduation.

Types of Events

UWAA events include receptions, dinners, luncheons, TV Watch parties, football pre-games, MWC basketball tournament pre-game parties, and meet and greets with various UW campus representatives. We also host young alumni events and arrange for discounted group tickets to sporting events such as professional baseball, basketball and lacrosse games. UWAA has coordinated golf tournaments, a dance festival in New York City, and more! 

 Homecoming reunions, for the young and young at heart, are important events that allow alumni to revisit their campus years. UWAA hosts a 50 year reunion event annually. Not only do we coordinate reunions, but we plan various activities throughout Homecoming weekend - campus tours, the Homecoming parade, and the Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Award recognition to name only a few.

Volunteer Opportunities  

Through the help of volunteers willing to sponsor events, we can grow the UW alumni network even more. It's easy to be a UWAA event volunteer; association staff do the planning associated with all functions. We just need people who can get involved, tell their friends, and having fun reconnecting!

If you have an idea for a get together or want to meet other people in your area who are fellow UW alumni, please contact Holly . We will work with you on a venue and ideas, send out invitations and help make your event a success! All the while, introducing you to fellow alumni and keeping the communication and networking lines open!

Networks and Chapters

For those volunteers who want to more formally organize a group of interested UW alumni, the UWAA is forming University of Wyoming Alumni Networks and Chapters to provide a vital role to the UWAA – they are our connection at the local level. Networks are being formed based on geographical area and UW interest. If you are interested in starting a network and working towards a chapter, contact the Alumni Association Office for a brochure at (307) 766-4166 or email us at uwalumni@uwyo.edu.

 

Current UW Alumni Networks and Chapters:

 

Multicultural Alumni Chapter

The University of Wyoming Multicultural Alumni Chapter (UW-MAC), established in 2008, will provides minority alumni opportunities to be involved and stay connected with the UW-MAC and UW while networking with and enjoying fellow UW alumni and friends. The program focuses on outreach to minority and under-represented groups, including African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Asian American, International and bi-racial alumni through specially designed, culturally sensitive events. In addition, the UW –MAC will strives to create a comfortable environment for networking and social interaction through the many events it co-sponsors with other organizations.

The purpose of establishing a Multicultural Alumni Chapter is to provide networking opportunities for minority alumni/future graduates and assist the University with their efforts to promote diversity and inclusion by providing leadership, funding resources and networking for past, present and future UW Cowboys.



  •   To provide an avenue for minority alumni to develop a vested interest in minority alumni to advance the institution.
  •   To engage minority alumni in the Minority Alumni Association and the University of Wyoming.
  •   To promote scholarship among deserving students of the University of Wyoming.
