The Mercer University Alumni Association, governed by a National Board of Directors and an Alumni Board of Directors for each college and school, seeks to promote the commitment of alumni to the University. The Association sponsors events each year, including Homecoming on the Macon campus and “Mercer Mingles” in cities where alumni live. A network of more than 45 local alumni chapters helps Mercerians stay connected in their hometowns.

Educational Partnerships

Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex — Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex (WRALC) is the largest entity housed at Robins Air Force Base. In 1983, WRALC and Mercer began discussions about the critical need for engineers at WRALC. As a result, the University established the School of Engineering in 1985 and Mercer Engineering Research Center in 1987. The educational partnership was formally renewed in 2014. Today, Mercer is WRALC’s largest source of entry-level engineers.
