People

UWiL operates under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors, with advice from an Advisory Board. Applications for Board of Director positions are accepted on a yearly basis and limited to UMass Amherst alumni. Advisory Board positions are extended by invitation only.

UWiL fellows also receive significant guidance from mentors. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact us!
