Part of Western Governors University
At WGU, we help our students achieve their dreams for a degree and career success by providing a personal, flexible, and affordable education based on real-world competencies. And, our personal investment in each of our students’ success does not come to an end at graduation. Rather, the university is constantly seeking ways to provide its more than 180,000 graduates with the tools they need to succeed in the next phase of their lives.
WGU Alumni Advisory Board members are instrumental resources and consultants for WGU Alumni Engagement’s ability to provide regionally relevant and effective programs. Advisory board members voluntarily serve for a term of one year, with the possibility of subsequent years at the discretion of the Alumni Engagement team (based on meaningful participation), and are expected to understand, support, and fulfill the responsibilities set forth below:
WGU Alumni Engagement relies on its advisory board members to be its most active and vocal supporters, telling the WGU story in their communities and organizations. This role of support and advocacy is distinct from that of traditional university leadership as WGU’s official spokesperson. No advisory board member shall speak officially on behalf of WGU, unless he/she is so authorized by the Alumni Engagement or WGU Communications team.
