Thank you to our alumni volunteers

Thank you to our exceptional volunteers

More than 1,000 alumni have volunteered their time to support the University of Exeter in this academic year 2016/17, bringing us to 94% of our Campaign target of 60,000 hours of volunteering time by 2020!

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of the 1,080 alumni who collectively gave more than 11,000 hours of time to support our students, staff and fellow alumni over the past year.

You supported in the UK and abroad. You supported in your workplaces, from home and on campus. More than 700 of you supported students with their career development this year – through careers talks, advice and signposting, mock interviews and one-on-one mentoring to name just a few. Many of you work hard to support your fellow alumni through formal and informal networks and groups, holding events and get-togethers across the world. Others have offered invaluable support to help us recruit the very best students.

Quite simply, we would not be able to do what we do without you. Thank you for helping us to make the exceptional happen.

Find out more about getting involved online. All support makes a difference and you can give as little as 30 minutes of your time.
