I’ve heard so many great things about you and your fellow Bath alumni since I joined as Director of Development & Alumni Relations. It’s only been a few weeks but I’ve been really impressed by the welcoming community and the important work being done by our students, researchers and alumni.

I am passionate about the role that universities play in educating tomorrow’s leaders and developing research with real-life impact – and Bath has an excellent reputation for both. With your help, we’ll be championing research that tackles major global challenges, from climate change and sustainability to healthcare, for the benefit of current and future generations.

Over the coming months, I look forward to getting to know this vibrant campus and stunning historic city. I very much hope to meet as many of you as possible at one of our events in future.

With best wishes,

Gordon Cox
Director of Development & Alumni Relations, University of Bath
