Alumni travel to Brackenhurst to confirm their support
3 February 2017
Despite it being a cold, dark, Friday 13th, our latest Alumni Fellows joined us at Brackenhurst as we launched the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences (ARES) Alumni Fellowship Programme.
At the event Alumni Fellows met their former lecturers and heard about the activities they can get involved in. After a welcome from Professor Rob Mortimer (Dean of ARES) and Clare Oswin (Alumni Relations Manager), new Alumni Fellow Rob Ayres (BSc Horticulture 2016) gave an inspiring talk about why he decided get involved.
Since the event, our Alumni Fellows have started contributing. They are mentoring current students, some have been back to give subject talks, and we are busy planning events with the Employability team and academic colleagues to encourage for further involvement. Alumni Fellowship Co-ordinator for ARES, Helen Trout, said: “Being an Alumni Fellow is a great way for alumni to gain some new skills whilst also giving something to NTU and supporting current students.”
The Alumni Fellowship Programme is now active in four NTU schools, and is set to roll out to the remaining schools later this year.
