Alumni Association

At UVA Wise we greatly value our relationships with alumni.  Being a Highland Cavalier doesn’t end at graduation. You are always a part of the UVA Wise family.  Our graduates are automatically members of the Alumni Association and there are no dues to participate.

The mission of the Alumni Association is aid, strengthen and expand the work and development of The University of Virginia’s College at Wise through the involvement of alumni.
