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.
