MUW Alumni Association



We offer many opportunities to connect through alumni chapters in a number of areas. If there currently is not an alumni chapter in your area, you may be interested in working with the Office of Development and Alumni to establish a chapter.

To get started, contact the Office of Development and Alumni ( or 662-329-7295) to let us know you are interested in starting a chapter in your area. Next, submit a list of counties and major cities and towns within a 75-mile radius of your location. The Office of Development and Alumni will conduct a survey of alumni living in the area to identify members who may be interested in becoming involved. Survey results typically take 4-6 weeks, and we will follow up with you on the next steps.

Find out more about alumni chapter guidelines and starting a chapter.

Also, take advantage of our Chapter and Constituency Group Toolkit.

Enjoy this video from the 2022 Chapters and Constituency Groups Workshop.

You are invited to join our Facebook group of chapter and constituency group leaders, where we exchange ideas and share information that you can share with your group.
