Re-ignite your passion for UWC, explore collaboration opportunities, or simply connect with like-minded individuals in your area at a Pearson and/or UWC alumni gathering. You can gather your fellow alumni in your region with a whole slew of different events. Some we’ve seen work successfully are potlucks, picnics, happy hours, and BBQs.

How to host a gathering:

We recommend a couple of alumni work together to plan and host an event. Give yourself time to prepare.

Regional event hosts typically:
  • select and secure the gathering site
  • work with the Alumni Office to define the invitation list
  • suggest wording for the invitation emails, social media posts and website
  • make personal outreaches to encourage attendance
  • attend the gathering and say a few words about Pearson or UWC
  • share posts about and photos from the gathering on social media during and/or after the event
The Alumni Office can help regional event volunteers in many ways:
  • connect you with other regional leaders
  • producing email lists of alumni in the area
  • sending email invitations and posting event information on the College’s social media outlets and website
  • coordinating RSVPs
  • providing talking points on College updates
  • providing event materials (e.g. name tags, donation cards, etc.)

Please contact the Alumni Engagement Officer at least 8 weeks before your proposed event date, so that we can help you organize and publicize the event.
