Cultures of Affection
Members of Durham University are members for life. We are delighted to be in regular contact with 128,000 contactable alumni and proud to have so many distinguished members of the Dunelm Society – a society which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2016.
Durham alumni are known for their outstanding contributions to public life, whether in the law, diplomacy, military, or judiciary; in industry, business or finance; in voluntary agencies, academia or the media; in sports, music or theatre; or wherever else that Durham talent shines a light.
Moving forward, Durham University is keen to build on the Cultures of Affection which bind our members to the University and to their Colleges.
By 2027, we will:
- Build an offer for our alumni members that will match the top performers in the UK, while learning also from the US and around the world. The Dunelm community will gain improved access to the intellectual, cultural and employment-related resources of Durham University as well as bespoke products and opportunities for networking.
- Encourage our alumni members to support the current and future generations of students at Durham University through a properly resourced system of peer to peer mentoring and where appropriate through Scholarship Support.
- Ensure regular meetings for Durham alumni in Durham, London and in major cities around the world.
