Mount Union alumni are a loyal and dedicated group. Whether volunteering, providing financial support, attending events, or participating in the educational journeys of today’s students, alumni provide the foundation upon which to build continued success while staying connected to the storied traditions and legacies of the past.
The Alumni Association was officially organized in 1948. All alumni, and anyone who has attended Mount Union for at least one semester, are members of the Alumni Association. Its purpose is to promote interest in Mount Union through a variety of programs and is governed by the Alumni Association Executive Board.
Alumni who update the University with their current contact information receive communication and information about exciting news and upcoming events. The Mount Union Magazine is a primary news source for alumni and includes news regarding campus, academics, athletics, students, alumni, current faculty, and class notes.
The Mount Union Alumni Executive Committee is comprised of selected alumni who chair four committees. Those interested in getting involved with a committee are welcome to join one of the following working committees:
Alumni who are interested in supporting Mount Union’s recruitment efforts are able to join the Enrollment Committee. Those involved assist the Office of Enrollment Services with specific events, including the Presidential Scholarship event, Legacy note writing campaign, and representing Mount Union at college fairs near you. The committee also oversees the selection of the Susie (Oberholzer) Buckel Alumni Association Scholarship recipients.
Alumni can assist the Office of Alumni Engagement with the development of programming and support at various events (attend) including Alumni Weekend and Homecoming, reunions and alumni gatherings in locations near you. The committee also assists with the development and outreach with Alumni Clubs across the country.
Alumni can assist the Office of Alumni Engagement and Office of Marketing with alumni communication efforts (spotlights, stories, features) and engaging with Mount Union’s social media channels. The committee also assists with mentoring efforts to connect students with alumni and promoting the Mount Union brand.
Alumni can assist the Office of Alumni Engagement with reaching out to specific groups of alumni to engage and build relationships with the institution with events (attending) such as Alumni Weekend and Homecoming, Not Another Statistic Diversity Conference, and many more!
