Friends of Keele

An introduction to the Friends 

Raven Mason Option 2 120 x120 The Friends of Keele are a wide range of people brought together by a common interest in the ongoing promotion, support and development of Keele University. The Friends' membership includes University alumni, current and former staff, members of the local community, corporate members and local societies. The network provides significant support to Keele by giving both time and donations to key University projects and activities. 

Since their launch in 1984, the Friends of Keele have acted as a successful focus for all those who support Keele University, bringing members together for an annual programme of social events whilst offering a wider audience the opportunity for enjoyable and informative interaction and the vital communication of ongoing news about the University's priorities and ambitions.

The Friends of Keele effectively promote the University to many individuals and organisations throughout the region and encourage their interest in Keele's activities and future plans.

‌The strategic shape and direction which the University will take in the coming years is exciting and distinctive. As the University continues to grow as one of the world's leading open, integrated intellectual communities, we would like to invite you to become involved in the future of Keele by becoming a Friend.

The Programme of Events for the Friends offers a range of different activities to suit all interests. Please see the events brochure below:
