Alumni Association

The object of the association is to maintain and strengthen the ties and interests that unite those who have attended William Penn University in order to serve, to support, and to uphold the University in its mission

The William Penn University Alumni Association (AA) was rebuilt in 2009 on the foundation of service. The organization exists to serve our valued alumni and maintain open communication—recent and long past, near and far. With this objective in mind, the Board of the AA is comprised of alumni from various graduation years. The AA continues to look for new opportunities to further engage alumni and bring ongoing value to its member group.
