Donor Groups & Fundraising Events
Members of the President’s Roundtable come from different parts of our community but share a common interest in Woodbury University and our mission.
The Dean's Circle
The Dean’s Circle is Woodbury’s newest recognition society, and the first that was created just for you, New Alumni who have graduated within the last 15 years. Many new alums have expressed their interest in making a bigger impact on Woodbury, so The Dean’s Circle was started to recognize those alums who are already stepping up their donation to Woodbury or ready to make their first donation, even just a few years after graduation.

Pop Whitten Heritage Society
Ray Howard Whitten became the sixth president of Woodbury Business College in 1922. Students soon began addressing him as “Pop” Whitten because of his openness and genuine concern for all Woodbury students. During his tenure, Whitten transformed the school from a traditional business school into a college of higher learning.
The President’s Lighthouse Society honors faculty and staff who have supported the mission and goals of Woodbury University by making annual contributions. Special recognition is provided to those members of the campus community who have supported Woodbury for three or more consecutive years.
