Meet the Team
The Alumni and Development Office is here to help Wolfson develop and maintain good relationships with its alumni and friends and to help them to stay in touch with College and with each other by organising events and producing publications.
We also fundraise for the College, encouraging alumni and friends of the College to support Wolfson so that it can continue to be a university leader for graduate study. We are always very happy to meet and hear from our alumni so please do let us know your views about your College and any ideas about how to participate in our work.
