UWGB Alumni Email Communications

We want to stay better connected and communicate a bit more electronically (supporting the mission of the original “Eco-U.”)

Currently, you are receiving the Alumni e-newsletter because you subscribed or provided an email address to the Alumni Office. Soon we will use this same database to touch base with other communications, including the e-newsletter, but also event invitations, alumni discount information and more. We promise not to overburden your inbox.

If you wish to unsubscribe to alumni email communications, you can do so at any time by informing the Alumni Relations Office at alumni@uwgb.edu or by hitting the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any emailed message. We hope you stay connected and allow us the opportunity to share the great alumni news, events and benefits that are in place just for you!
