Keele in the World - Alumni Networks Worldwide
International alumni are essential to the fulfilment of Keele’s strategic aims to increase diversity at our campus, to enhance the global nature of the Keele experience for staff and students, to extend opportunities for the Distinctive Keele Curriculum and to present Keele as a University with a global presence and reputation.
Keele alumni are eager to engage with one another and with the University and many choose to be part of the Keele worldwide community through our “Keele in the World" networks. The first active Keele in the World networks were launched in 2012 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary Year of the Royal Charter. Each network has or will have one or more alumni ambassadors who connect with fellow alumni to spread the word and create opportunities for alumni to be engaged, involved, asked and inspired.
Our students come from at least 159 different countries and we are in contact with alumni in 139 countries.
Keele in the World Ambassadors
Each “Keele in” network has one or more ambassadors - these are all Keele alumni invited to communicate with and energise their network. Ambassadors are encouraged to connect with fellow alumni and to help them become more involved and inspired. Contact your Keele in the World Ambassador by e-mail here.
Note: We are not permitted give alumni ambassadors the personal contact details of alumni so your privacy is secure - messages will come to the Alumni & Development Office and forwarded to ambassadors for them respond directly.
The best way to communicate and to get together with alumni in your country is to join the social network groups listed below - LinkedIn tends to be more useful for business-related networking and Facebook is more appropriate for social networking - please join both and bring your Keele in the World network to life!
Ambassadors: Neil Smith (New York), Mark Hill (California), William Bangert (Florida), Mark Harding (Washington), Adam Konowe (Virginia), Steph Austin (Oregon)
