WesternU Alumni Association

WesternU Alumni Association Logo

The WesternU Alumni Association (WUAA) is being revamped for a grand relaunch. WUAA promotes and supports the University's mission and strategic plans. Any graduate who received a degree from Western University of Health Sciences is automatically a member of the WesternU Alumni Association. Whether you're a recent graduate or an established professional, we welcome you to explore alumni benefits and resources on our website. 



Alumni Leadership Board

The WUAA Alumni Leadership Board provides opportunities for enthusiastic alumni to become more engaged with the University and to represent over 18,000 alumni. Board members work in partnership with the Office of Alumni Relations on a variety of activities, including the development of alumni communications, alumni events and programming, and outreach to current students.
