The Friends of WMU (FoWMU) is an all volunteer bi-partisan state political action committee, registered with the Michigan Secretary of State, and established to promote the interests of Western Michigan University (WMU).
FoWMU contributes to candidates for state office who share the priorities of WMU.
The Friends of WMU helps build the relationships with state legislators necessary to secure public funding for the next generation of WMU students. Western Michigan University exists today because of a history of public dollars that have built a campus with nationally recognized faculty and state-of-the-art facilities.
Thousands of alumni started their careers with a diploma from WMU and are today the foundation of this state’s economic and civic community. Their diplomas were made possible because of public funding of WMU.
