CEAS Alumni Association (CAA)

The UWM Alumni Association maintains active chapters that are affiliated with colleges, schools, and other affinity groups within the university's family. Known as Alumni Associations, these organizations operate under by-laws approved by the Alumni Association.

The CEAS Alumni Association's mission is to keep our alumni connected to the college. We welcome ideas for programs, events, etc. that appeal to CEAS alumni. In addition to your input, we always like to hear from alumni interested in leadership positions within the CEAS Alumni Association. Please direct your suggestions to Juli Pickering, liaison to the CAA at jlpicker@uwm.edu.

The UWM Alumni Association is now a dues-free organization. Learn more by visiting the association’s site.
