Wesleyan College Alumnae Association

Wesleyan's first class graduated in 1840, four years after the College was chartered. Just as the College was the world's first to grant a baccalaureate degree to a woman, the Wesleyan College Alumnae Association, organized on July 11, 1859, was the world's first alumnae association. All former Wesleyan students who have earned thirty or more semester hours at the College - whether or not they have graduated - are considered members of the Association.

Today, the Association is governed by the Board of Managers. Three alumnae trustees represent the Association on the Wesleyan Board of Trustees. The Association promotes alumnae engagement with the College by providing volunteer, social, and learning opportunities. Through e-communications and the publication of the Wesleyan Magazine, nearly 9,000 alumnae are kept informed of the activities and achievements of Wesleyan College alumnae.

"To contribute to the strength and prosperity of our Alma Mater" - an objective stated in the Association's first constitution - expresses the continuing commitment of resources, both human and financial, to maintain Wesleyan's unique heritage and to ensure the continuing success of Wesleyan College.
