What is the Alumni Advisory Board?

The Alumni Advisory Board is made up of 15 representatives from our graduate community around the world.

Board members work to help the University to improve the services which are provided to all members of the wider alumni community. The Board aims to:

  • Create an informed body of advocates for the University.
  • Facilitate networking and professional development opportunities for our alumni.
  • Take responsibility for sustaining lifelong relationship and communication with the worldwide alumni community.
  • Celebrate, with the University, the achievements of our alumni and seek to inspire the next generation of Loughborough graduates.
  • Support the current student population and promote access to careers advice, support and mentoring.
  • Aid and actively support the University engagement and fundraising activities.

Four key areas of work

The University has four key strands of work which Board members support:

Advocates: Ensure that alumni represent the Loughborough community in a positive manner and are strong advocates for everything that the University does and stands for. Our alumni are great advocates of the University both in the UK and Internationally.

Experts: Developing relationships with alumni, who are experts in their area of work to provide professional networking opportunities, give guest lectures, offer advice, share knowledge and mentor students and fellow alumni.

Employers: Work with alumni to provide student placements, internships and support graduate employability as well as working with alumni on guest lectures and talks.

Donors and Sponsors: This is predominantly managed by the Philanthropy team. Through engaging with alumni and building strong relationships they may become donors of the University in the future.
