Affinity Groups and Committees

The Office of Alumni Engagement strives to create numerous ways for alumni to engage with one another, students, and the University to ensure your experience is meaningful. In efforts to do just that, we have various Affinity Groups and Committees that enable opportunities to remain connected with IWU and fellow alumni. 

Each Affinity Group and Committee has their own mission and purpose. Leadership from each group and committee reports to the Alumni Association Board of Directors. View the links below to learn more about each group. 

  • Council for Women
    The Council for IWU Women give time, talent, and resources to support the personal and professional development of the women of Illinois Wesleyan.

  • International Alumni Network
    Illinois Wesleyan University is proud to recognize our international alumni community via the International Alumni Network (IAN). This community spans many different regions, countries, and cultures. No matter where our alumni live, it is our hope that friendships and memories created at IWU last a lifetime.

  • Alumni of Color Collective
    The Alumni of Color Collective (ACC) provides meaningful opportunities for minority alumni to engage with the Illinois Wesleyan community through social, educational, and service activities.
