UWM’s Alumni Captain Program provides the opportunity for alumni outside of the Milwaukee area to connect in a particular city or region where an organized chapter is not located.

You can represent UWM by applying to be a lead volunteer or “alumni captain”. Captains serve in variety of capacities that meet the needs of local Panthers, including welcoming new alumni to your region, aiding with events in your area, and collaborating with the UWMAA for local community engagement opportunities.
