Founded in 1927, the WLU Alumni Association has over 60,000 members worldwide. The mission statement of the association reads: "The Association seeks to foster alumni interaction with the University and Alumni Communities; to promote active alumni participation in the affairs of the university; to maintain and promote the reputation of the University and contribute to its ongoing development."

A 25-member, elected Board of Directors governs the association, and alumni representatives also sit on the University Senate and Board of Governors. In order to fulfill its mission, the association manages several affinity programs benefiting alumni and the university alike. Revenue from life, home and auto insurance, an affinity credit card, long distance and Internet access programs are used to fund scholarships for Laurier students, alumni and student events, Homecoming, as well as alumni chapter programs.

The Laurier Student Alumni is a vibrant group of students who participate and plan many great events including an annual Parents' Day, Student Exam Care Packages and degree framing for graduands. More information can be found at www.wlu.ca/lsa
