University of Wyoming Alumni Association | Alumni Networks

Alumni Networks

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association organizes Alumni Networks in Wyoming, throughout the country, and internationally to provide a connection to the University of Wyoming at the local level through dedicated community volunteers. UWAA Networks play a vital role in providing services, events, and interest-based networking where our alumni live – everywhere!

What is a UWAA Alumni Network?

Networks are local or interest based affiliates of the University of Wyoming Alumni Association formed by alumni and fan volunteers to:

  1. Provide alumni, friends, and fans with a connection to UW and expand UWAA outreach across the nation and the world!
  2. Promote participation in the UWAA.
  3. Coordinate activities and events that bring alumni and fans together to support UW athletics, academics, recent graduates, and alumni and fans in your community.

Start a Network

If there is not a network in your area yet, you can start your own! If you are interested in starting a network in your area your next steps are:  

1.   Become a University of Wyoming Alumni Association member (if you’re not already). All network leaders must be current members. Click here to join the UWAA.

2.   Contact the UWAA’s Network Coordinator: Bonnie Hanson Cordell - or 307-766-4166. 

3. Next, gauge the interest of those alumni/friends in starting a network. We recommend one of the following events as a way to get people together for this purpose:

 Game watch party
Happy Hour or Reception at a family-friendly restaurant
 Family activity (bowling, roller blading, putt-putt golf, etc.)
 Cookout at a volunteer’s home

UWAA staff will coordinate communications.

Take time to plan a quality event that will reflect well on you, UW, and the UW Alumni Association. This event will set the tone for the support and participation area alumni/friends will give the network. The activity should appeal to a range of age groups. 

After this event you should have a good idea as to whether additional network activities should be planned.

Questions? Contact the UWAA’s Network Coordinator: Bonnie Hanson Cordell - or 307-766-4166.
