Alumni Leadership

My-project-1-1.jpgI am excited to serve as your Alumni Director at Wayland, and I am planning programming that will benefit both you and the university as we keep you connected to WBU no matter where you go or in which season of life you are. Our goal is to build connections for current students (our future alumni!), help graduates transition into the workforce, enhance networking among alumni for career support and connection, communicate effectively with alumni, and develop alumni chapters and vibrant events to connect you in various locations.

We hope you will keep in touch with our office if we can help you or if you want to share ideas about making these things happen. I am eager to meet each of you and hear your Wayland story!

Call me anytime at (806) 291-3600. ~Jeffrey Vera
