I am delighted to share with you our 2018/19 Impact Report – a celebration of the generosity of our alumni and friends.
These gifts have made a real difference, both here on campus and beyond, whether that's supporting scholarships for disadvantaged young people, funding cutting-edge research or enhancing student excellence.
I also bid you farewell, as I leave the University for pastures new at the end of this month. I joined Development & Alumni Relations as Deputy Director in 2008, becoming Director in 2011, and it has been a privilege to lead the team for all these years.
My strongest impressions will be the fondness with which Bath graduates think of their alma mater, and their overwhelming willingness to support current students when asked.
It is a pleasure to leave you on such a positive note as we celebrate the impact of our alumni. Thank you for all that you have done – and will do for my successor!
With very best wishes,
Gavin A. Maggs
Director of Development & Alumni Relations
