During this period of "social distancing" - we don't have to socially disengage. We want you to continue connecting and engaging with one another and the university in creative and purposeful ways. Now is the time to be innovative – together we keep the Titan spirit going.
Alumni participants enrich Illinois Wesleyan University through leadership of groups and initiatives while creating opportunities for the IWU community. Through engagement efforts, alumni can make a great impact on the IWU family - whether it be by leading alumni groups, sharing experiences with future students, mentoring current students, or giving to your alma mater. There are so many ways to make a difference. Wherever and whenever you have time and talent to share, there is a way for you to contribute.
