New organization will continue to promote UWL
For the past two years, leaders of both the UWL Foundation & UWL Alumni Association have been discussing “Optimizing Alignment” (teaming up, collaborating, joining forces) to form a new stronger operation to promote UWL.
We are excited! These two organizations have worked together the past 50-plus years, and we believe this new structure will help us serve our students, alumni, friends and UWL in the best possible way. Our alumni and friends deserve the absolute best, and we plan to deliver.
The new arrangement aligns with best practices in the industry today. It will allow the activities that we do to advance UWL to be seamless and should create a more fulfilling experience for our alumni and benefactors. We are very excited to see it in action.
The goal is for the UWL Foundation and UWL Alumni Association to become the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Alumni & Friends Foundation. The target date for the new organization is July 1, 2023.
If you have questions regarding the new organization, don’t hesitate to contact Greg Reichert, Vice Chancellor for Advancement & President of the UWL Foundation, email@example.com or Janie Morgan, Executive Director of Strategic Engagement, firstname.lastname@example.org.
