Young Alumni Council
The Illinois Wesleyan University Young Alumni Council (YAC) is comprised of graduates
of the last decade. Council members assist in fostering and sustaining relationships
between IWU and their classmates in an effort to keep them engaged and actively involved.
The YAC aims to enrich the lives of students and recent graduates through programming,
philanthropy, social and professional networking opportunities and volunteer recruitment.
These opportunities assist young alumni in their transition from a collegiate to professional
career and lays the foundation for a relationship with their alma mater that lasts
