Alumni Groups

Alumni often form special groups around a particular identity, shared area of interest, or career focus. The Office of Alumni and Family Engagement provides active groups with organizational support in an effort to connect alumni with each other and strengthen the global alumni network. Below are active groups that the Office of Alumni and Family Engagement currently supports. 

Wooster LGBTQ+ Alumni and Allies

Launched in 2017, this group seeks to build a stronger community of LGBTQ+ Alumni and Allies through regional gatherings, Alumni Weekend forums, and assembling a multi-generational history of the LGBTQ+ experience at Wooster. We support Wooster's current LGBTQ+ students by collaborating with activities of the campus' Center for Diversity and Inclusion (such as the annual Lavender Celebration), and helping to secure additional resources to endow scholarships for these students.
