Sheffield in America

Pic - Local Alumni in New York

Sheffield alumni from the New York area enjoyed a special reception and dinner at the University Club in September. The event was hosted by Vice-Chancellor Professor Keith Burnett and welcomed special guest alumni Jim Grant (otherwise known as best-selling thriller novelist Lee Child) and Professor Sir Richard Roberts (1993 Nobel Laureate in Physiology/Medicine).

It was a welcome opportunity for Sheffield to build links with our North American alumni and a great chance for local networking in the Sheffield alumni community.

The occasion was timed to coincide with a meeting of the Board of the University of Sheffield in America, our sister organisation in the United States, which helps American alumni to stay connected with and support the University in the UK.
