If you are a graduate of Wesley College or attended its predecessor, Wesley Junior College, then you are automatically a member of the Wesley Alumni Association! Proud graduates like yourself are the College's greatest ambassadors and your voice and involvement in the Alumni Association is very important.
Under the direction of its currently elected Board of Directors, the Association works closely and cooperatively with the Office of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving under the umbrella of the Office of Institutional Advancement at Wesley College. Together, they act as a liaison between the College and its graduates and aim to serve the interests of all alumni and keep them connected with each other and the institution through the programming and services they provide.
Alumni Board Involvement
The Alumni Association seeks dedicated alumni leaders who can serve a minimum three
year term and proudly represent their fellow graduates. The Alumni Board
has different committees that serve as advisors and outreach agents for
programs and events to further engage alumni and develop
partnerships that can benefit alumni, students and the College in
general. The current Alumni Board committees are:
- Student Life-Academics – this committee works with
the Vice President of Academic Affairs and the Dean of Enrollment on
academic and recruitment issues. The Scholarship Committee is a
sub-committee of the Student Life-Academics Committee. This committee
reviews student scholarship applications and selects the recipients of
four alumni scholarships that are awarded during the annual Founders Day
- Student Life-Activities – this committee works
with the Dean of Student Affairs and the Director of Athletics in regard
to student organizations, programs and events. In particular, its
members encourage alumni to participate in sporting events/games and
volunteer with campus events during the year.
- Alumni Outreach – this committee works with the
Vice President of Institutional Advancement to enhance alumni volunteer
opportunities, alumni events and programs. The GOLD Committee (GOLD stands for Graduates Of the Last Decade)
is a sub-committee of the Alumni Outreach Committee. This committee
focuses on planning events for our younger alumni during Homecoming and
throughout the year.
- Fundraising and Promotion – this committee reviews
the fundraising efforts of the Alumni Board and makes recommendations
for spending funds in an effort to support students and the College.
Nominations for the Alumni Board of Directors are accepted
throughout the year and are voted on annually during Homecoming Weekend.
