    Science Alliance

    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.

    The Role of an Alliance Member

    • Offer advice, expertise, and useful criticism
    • Teach about career fields and what expectations should be set for students
    • Inform on trends within professions that may require the College's attention, specifically identifying employment trends
    • Help the College look to the future, identifying issues that members believe deserving of the University's attention in long-range planning
    • Offer assistance as hosts for meetings, special functions or admissions events, if possible
    • Serve as ambassadors for the University having gained firsthand knowledge of the University through Alliance affiliation



    Science Alliance members are friends and alumni of the University. They are civic leaders, individuals with expertise and knowledge that can be extremely beneficial to students and faculty in the sciences, and their relationship to the college is one of dedication and affection. Ideally, the size of the Alliance will be between 20-30 persons.

    Alliance members represent a variety of careers, backgrounds, and expertise. An effort will be made to include diversity within the membership, male-female balance, and desirable ratio of local to non-local members.

    Please contact Tamara Hauck if you would like more information about Science Alliance.
