William Woods University (WWU) is committed to seeing its graduates, including those alumni that run their own businesses, succeed. To help make that happen, the University today announced the establishment of a new William Woods University Alumni Business Directory.
Created by the WWU Office of Advancement and Alumni Relations, the William Woods Alumni Business Directory is intended to provide information to alumni and other members of the University community who are seeking certain products or services, and who wish to support WWU alumni business owners and service providers. Participation in the directory is free for William Woods alumni business owners and service providers, and all alumni business owners – whether in a physical location or a virtual platform – are encouraged to list their businesses.
“When traveling, it would be a plus to be able to research alumni-owned businesses in an area and support those businesses accordingly,” said Kathy Groves, Vice-President of University Advancement. “I know many alumni, University employees and students feel the same way. Through the WWU Alumni Business Directory, we hope to see growth beyond just alumni supporting alumni, but also alumni businesses supporting William Woods students through summer work, internships, and even full-time work. We have a great opportunity to create a full circle of support.”
Overall, William Woods has approximately 25,000 active alumni throughout the United States and the world. An online form for businesses to register with the WWU Alumni Business Directory can be found here:
