TODAY… FOR A BRIGHTER TOMORROW | WMU Alumni Skip to main content


 When we come together, we make Western Michigan University the place where all students can thrive while preparing for a bright future. When we give to WMU, we give students what they need to be their best in the classroom, on the field, and in the community. 

In the Classroom. At Western Michigan University, students transform into professionals. They arrive on campus to build a foundation for a successful future where they can share their knowledge and thrive in their communities.

On the Field. Bronco student-athletes play two different games; working toward a degree, and working for a win on the field. We want to ensure that they have what they need to make the grade and the goal.

In the Community. Broncos like to use their knowledge to help others, and we like to provide experiences that put knowledge into practice while serving the community.

Today, we can ensure that all students have the opportunity to reach their goals with scholarships, out-of-classroom experiences, premier facilities, and by learning from a knowledgeable and caring faculty… and it will mean a lifetime of Brighter Tomorrows for our students, alumni, and communities around the world.
