Join a network of Shockers who advance the university

President’s Club was founded to honor the legacy of Wichita State University’s 14 presidents. These leaders advanced the university, through good times and bad, from a small private college to the vibrant 330-acre state institution it is today. Our members find community through their generous contributions to the continuation of this legacy and the betterment of Wichita State University.

All members of the President’s Club are invited to an exclusive, annual celebration and are honored with a plaque as a new member.

President’s Club Celebration
With your health and safety in mind, we have decided to cancel the President’s Club event scheduled for Sept. 12, 2020. We regret not being able to gather as a large group, but we are identifying other ways to see you this next year. We hope to see you in person again soon.
