Alumni Chapter Development

Thank you, for your motivation and commitment to start an alumni chapter in your area.  The WJU Office of Alumni Relations is excited that you and fellow alumni are focusing on an action such as this.   

There are standards and guidelines which need adhered to before a chapter is ready to be formed.  It takes dedication to start a chapter, so the WJU Alumni Office wants to make sure a chapter is feasible for your area.  The following steps will outline for you the process by which a chapter becomes reality.

Step 1 Notify the Wheeling Jesuit University Alumni Office regarding your desire to start a chapter in your area.

Step 2 The Alumni Office will be able to establish how many alumni are living in your area.  The benchmark for starting a chapter is approximately 25 50.

Step 3 Once it has been determined that there is a sufficient alumni population to support a chapter, a survey (attached) can be sent to all those listed, in order to determine interest.

Step 4 Once interest is determined, an organizational group will be selected.  This group will hold a meeting at which time the chapter will be established and officers elected.  The chapter will be recognized by WJU once all of the necessary guidelines have been fulfilled and necessary paperwork filed with the WJU Office of Alumni Relations.  The organizational meeting will also be used to determine what direction the chapter should go in terms of signature events, social gatherings, fundraisers, etc.
