Calling all alumni

  • Nominations will open soon for the Alumni Council election, due to be held later this year.

    The Alumni Council represents the interests of the University and its alumni worldwide. Six members will be elected this time round for two-year terms.

    Alumni Council President Joseph Doyle (MB BS(Hons), BA 2002, BA(Hons) 2005) is encouraging all alumni to consider putting forward candidates for election.

    “By joining the Alumni Council, you can influence how the University engages with its graduates, current students and the community at large,” said Mr Doyle, who has served on the Council since 2011.

    The nomination period will run from mid-August to late-September. Only alumni are eligible for nomination, and they must be nominated by another alumnus or alumna. Nominations from alumni overseas are welcomed.

    Voting will run from early October to early November, with all alumni, including alumni without a degree, eligible to vote.
