Your invitation to our AGM – plus news, events and more

Posted in: Bath, Newsletter, On campus, Research

We recently joined the country in celebrating the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort, and welcomed our local neighbours, staff and students to a free BBQ and film screening of Paddington on campus.

The occasion was a particularly special one due to our links to the Royal Family through our Chancellor HRH The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Edward.

We are also delighted to invite you to our annual AGM of Convocation, the statutory body representing the interests of you and your fellow alumni, on Wednesday 14 June at 1pm (BST).

This online event is an excellent opportunity to hear the latest Bath updates from Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Ian White DL FREng, and Director of Development & Alumni Relations Gordon Cox, as well as to join in with a Q&A session.

Register now to attend – we hope you can join us!
