With a deep commitment to UWL's tradition and innovation, our purpose is to engage alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations to raise the financial support necessary to advance the University’s mission and vision.

Events on campus and in the community are some of the ways we show our appreciation and engage UWL donors and friends.
