Alumni Board

The Alumni Board has been created to support, advise, monitor and comment on the effectiveness of the University’s alumni engagement programme.

The Alumni Board

The Board works closely with the Office to develop and strengthen programs that enhance the relationships alumni have with the University and with each other. Members are committed to supporting The University of Sheffield’s overall interests among the entire alumni community and in the world at large. Membership represents a broad diversity of departmental affiliations, class years, geographies and personal backgrounds. Members will serve either a two or three year term, with the possibility of staying for one additional term. No one will serve more than two terms and they will meet three times per year either in Sheffield or London.
