Season’s Greetings, Wildcats!

We have exciting news—our CWU Alumni team is growing, but we need your help! Please share our open positions with your networks as we search for team members who will play a role in growing our Wildcat Nation, with many more CWU and University Advancement positions opening soon.

We are currently recruiting an Associate Director of Alumni Programs to connect with CWU alumni, engage volunteer leaders, and design alumni experiences to grow the Wildcat Nation. We are also seeking qualified candidates to be our newest alumni relations coordinators, which will be embedded in each of the CWU colleges. These positions will work closely with the rest of the CWU Alumni Association team and their respective college to build alumni engagement within the academic departments. Learn more or apply today by visiting or LinkedIn. CWU is an EEO/AA/Title IX/Veteran/Disability Employer.

If you want to show your Wildcat pride in the workplace, you can now order professional CWU branded apparel from Shirtworks! You can order online and pick up in the Ellensburg store, or have your items shipped to you. Visit the CWU Branded Apparel Store to shop these new items now.

The holidays are quickly approaching, and we know how hard it can be to think of the perfect gift for friends and family. This year, give the Wildcats in your life the gift of a CWU Alumni Association or Student Alumni Association membership. We offer monthly, yearly, and lifetime options that begin at only $5 a month! Visit and give the Wildcats in your life the best gift of the season.

The CWU Alumni Association is partnering with Bale Breaker Brewing Company to create an alumni-crafted beer for the Wildcat family. We will have two release parties coming up in January, with the first being at Bale Breaker’s Yakima location on January 14, and the second being at the Ballard location on January 22. More information will be forthcoming, but for now, mark your calendars for the date and location that works best for you and we look forward to seeing you there!

As the end of the year nears, we encourage you to embrace the season of gratitude and invest in CWU student success. Our dedicated supporters help turn dreams into reality by providing students with the important gift of an education by making a gift at Your continued generosity makes a significant difference, and we thank you for showing your support!

We hope everybody has had a safe and joyful holiday season and we look forward to seeing you in the new year. Go Cats!
