The Greater Metropolitan Washington D.C. Alumni Chapter (GMWDC) exists to promote John Carroll University and foster positive relationships between alumni in and around our Nation’s Capital. With over 825 alumni living within the chapter, the GMWDC ranks as theĀ  largest group of alumni in on the East Coast, and the one of the largest group in the nation. The chapter encompasses Baltimore and Eastern Maryland, Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia. Getting involved with the GMWDC is one of the easiest ways for alumni to stay connected to John Carroll. Driven by a chapter board of volunteers, the chapter works to provide meaningful and engaging program based around the five core components of John Carroll chapter programming. They are as follows:

  • Service and Civic Engagement Opportunities
  • Leadership/Professional Development
  • Educational/Cultural/Spiritual Programming
  • Social Events
  • Alumni-in-Admissions

The volunteer corps of the chapter meets monthly to discuss and plan upcoming events and topics that aid in the development of the chapter, its membership and the University. Over the past year, the chapter has hosted a number of happy hours and they play and important role in the annual Washington D.C. Alumni reception and with the recruitment of new students. In the future the chapter is looking to create other meaningful opportunities to connect alumni, including dinners outside of the District, service opportunities an hosting a mass with a dinner to follow. If you have an idea for a chapter event or would like to get more involved contact one of the chapter volunteers or e-mail the chapter at washingtondc@jcu.edu.
