Stay involved with WUSC

The depth and breadth of WUSC’s programming has touched many lives over the decades. Today, our illustrious alumni can be found all over the world, where they continue to leave their mark on global development. Some of our alumni have gone on to lead vital development projects, organizations, and awareness-raising campaigns. Others are nurturing global citizenship within the post-secondary community, as university presidents, international staff, faculty members, and students. One of our earliest alumni even went on to become the Prime Minister of Canada!

Whether your first involvement with WUSC dates back 60 days or 60 years, there are many ways you can rediscover the organization where it all began.
