COVID-19 Information for Willamette Alumni Events

In an effort to minimize the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are suspending all on- and off-campus alumni gatherings and events from March 16 until at least April 30.

Alumni Reunion Weekend 2020 is currently scheduled for June 18-21 and we are continuing to plan for a remarkable time for everyone returning to campus.

Join #teamwillamette for Global Day of Service

What started as a way to commemorate Willamette's 175th anniversary is becoming a new WU tradition. On April 11, 2020, Bearcats from around the world will take part in Willamette's fourth annual Global Day of Service, a time to give back to our local communities and live the university motto, "Not unto ourselves alone are we born."

It doesn't matter where you live or how big or small your service project is. All Bearcats are encouraged to get out and join #teamwillamette! When we all come together to work toward the common goal of improving our communities, we can make an immeasurable impact.

Alumni volunteers have coordinated several service efforts in major cities across the country. See more information about those events below. If you aren't near one of these areas, organize your own project and share your experience with us! Simply email a photo and a description of your project to, and we'll share with the alumni community! Or use #teamwillamette across social media to share your hard work with us.
