About the Young Alumni Council

The Young Alumni Council provides an opportunity for young alumni to maintain ties to WKU, and provide important feedback to the Alumni Association on programming for their interests. The focus will be to educate young alumni, as well as the public at large, about the programs, services, and mission of the Alumni Association, as well as to advance and support the general education welfare of WKU.

The Young Alumni Council consists of 20 members, all of whom graduated within the last 10 years. Anyone who has completed one academic year of work in good standing at Western Kentucky University is considered an alumnus, and thus is eligible to serve on the council. Three officers exist for the council – President, President – Elect, and Immediate Past President.
