With chapters across the country, our alumni represent what is possible with a degree from the College of Letters & Sciences, and how learning is truly a lifelong endeavor.
As an alum of the College, you are in a unique position. You are a part of our legacy of high-achieving professionals and can take advantage of many of our offerings. Some of these include:
Our alumni office and local chapters schedule meetings and receptions, reunions and award celebrations, international trips and dinner events, as well as other activities throughout the year, both at the UW-Whitewater campus and at locations around the country.
Our innovative alumni mentor program offers you a unique way to give back to the College community. By working closely with a current student, you will help him or her to open networking doors and learn from your extensive knowledge, while at the same time strengthening your own ties to the College of Letters & Sciences.

The Science Alliance involves a group of 30 science alumni who meet with science faculty annually to discuss ways to strengthen the science programs and offer advice to improve the UW-Whitewater student experience. Members of the Science Alliance include alumni who are corporate presidents, engineers, dentists, doctors, researchers, astrophysicists, and professors.
The Dean's Advisory Board is a group of renowned and respected alumni from across the United States who meet annually with the Dean of the College to discuss ways to advance the mission of the College of Letters & Sciences and to promote the College at the University, community, and global levels. The 30 individuals on this board include company presidents, attorneys, CEOs, and business owners. They generously lend their expertise and time in a collective effort to further strengthen the College's performance in the 21st century.
The generosity of our alumni makes it possible to offer a wide variety of scholarships to incoming students and to strengthen the College's legacy well into the future. The L&S Annual Fund provides awards for faculty and student excellence, as well as contributing to the equipment and supply needs that would go unfunded without alumni support.

Other examples include the generosity of alumni like Roger Rowin ('67) and his wife Mary, who graciously gave a portion of their estate to endow the David W. Adamany Scholarship fund. And Rod Sonnenburg ('81), whose major gift helped make the UW-Whitewater Student Athletic Complex a reality. And Ross Kinzler ('71), who also recently made a planned gift to the College.
