WMU Pride Alumni Network

Welcome to the Western Michigan University Pride Alumni Network! 

About Pride Alumni Network
The group was formed in 2013 when a small team of dedicated alumni decided to create an organization to focus on strengthening connections with WMU alumni and the LGBTQA community. In the past two years, we've held a fall Homecoming reception at Homecoming, started an annual awards program, and we have some fabulous things being planned for 2015.
