The Long Blue Line


How to Start an Alumni Chapter

There are many opportunities to connect with our more than 28,000 alumni around the world.  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 in the documents section of the MUW Alumni Association page.
