A Welcome From the UWG Alumni Association Chair, Christopher Sanders '03

Christopher Sanders

It is an exciting time to be a member of the UWG community, as we dedicate ourselves to the curation of a first-choice university! Under President Brendan B. Kelly’s leadership, our students, faculty, and staff continue to do amazing work, and our academic programs are ranked among the best in the nation in launching students' careers when they graduate – if not before. The UWG Alumni Association board of directors helps shape our trajectory and serves the university in intentional, meaningful ways, and it is my distinct honor and pleasure to lead the board as it invests in the future of UWG.

Go West, and Go Wolves!

The Alumni Association Board of Directors fosters relationships between alumni and the university through local, national, and international events and programming.

NEW! Student Alumni Association Board of Directors (current students)

UWG Alumni & Constituent Engagement is excited to invite current UWG students to apply for a position on the Student Alumni Association (SAA) Board of Directors. The SAA Board works closely with the UWG Alumni Association Board of Directors to foster relationships between alumni and the university. SAA Board membership is a meaningful way to be involved in creating the UWG student experience. The SAA Board meets quarterly (four times per academic year) as a full board and works in smaller task forces throughout the year to make a positive impact on UWG students as they interact with alumni. This SAA Board application is open through April 1, 2024. Applicants will be selected for interviews on a rolling basis as they submit applications, and then selected candidates will be invited to join the board prior to the end of the Spring 2024 semester. SAA Board terms last for one academic year and are renewable through your graduation. Terms will begin in August 2024. Please contact alumni@westga.edu with any questions. Go Wolves!
