Pride Alumni Community


The Pride Alumni Community (PAC) welcomes all members of the Illinois Wesleyan University community to join us: alumni, students, faculty, staff, family and friends of the University. Our mission is to connect members of the LGBTQIA community, friends and allies to our alma mater.


We support the Pride Alliance, the IWU student-run organization on campus, in their commitment to all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, as well as their transition into engaged alumni who will continue to be productive members of the University upon graduation.

We share the University’s overall educational, admission, career, and fundraising objectives, especially as they relate to and affect LGBTQIA students, faculty, and staff, and seek to become an integral part of the University community.

We held our first alumni and student reception at Homecoming 2007 campus festivities. The PAC Homecoming Brunch has become our signature annual event, bringing members of our community together to celebrate Homecoming, visit with old friends, make new friends, meet the students of the IWU Pride Alliance, announce the recipient of the PAC Scholarship and be joined by a distinguished speaker.

We have also began hosting regional PAC Connections in Chicago and Bloomington, and hope to expand our visibility, support and dedication to the University through educational programs for students and professional development and networking among alumni.
