Message from the WCU Alumni Association

The West Chester University Alumni Association (WCUAA) is governed by a board of eighteen directors who serve three-year terms and meet four times annually. Six directors are elected each year.  

The Alumni Association Board of Directors plays an important role in the University community. Board members are responsible for establishing strategic goals for the creation and delivery of useful programs and services for all West Chester alumni. They also serve as the voice of alumni and represent the views of all graduates of the University. Directors are ambassadors of the University, helping alumni connect with one another and the campus community.

Alumni Spotlight

Emily Ireland Ramblings Spotlight

The Alumni Relations Office recently caught up with Emily Ireland, '17. Originally from Egg Harbor, NJ she is currently a nurse (BSN, RN) working on the Neuroscience/Medical Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA. She shared that she was inspired to go into nursing because she is a Type I diabetic and has Hashimoto's hypothyroidism. Emily had an amazing and supportive diabetic nurse named, Tara who was there for her "through the good, bad and ugly through those 10 years." Tara encouraged Emily to not let her diabetes get in the way of her dreams and that she could be someone else's "Tara" one day!

West Chester Nursing gave her the education and tools to enter the nursing world with confidence. The simulation lab gave her the opportunity to practice many hands on skills and the ability to work through emergency situations in a controlled environment. It truly made all the difference!
