The University of Sheffield in America is a separate legal entity from the University.

Decisions on how Sheffield in America donations are spent can only be made by its Board of Directors; all Sheffield alumni and/or donors, all volunteers. This separation ensures autonomy for the US Directors to direct donations in the best interest of both the University and its US supporters.
