The primary role of our Keele Alumni HQ is to keep in touch with as many of our alumni as we can. As part of this programme of communications and events, each year a team of our current students telephone Keele alumni in our annual Telethon.

Alumni Telethon

Keele students share their experiences of the Keele Key Fund telethon.

This is a more personal way to share Keele’s news with alumni and we hope it is an enjoyable opportunity to rekindle memories of time spent here as well as hear about life today at Keele and the developments on campus.

Our students benefit from a glimpse of life after Keele, and we find our students frequently tell us about how the calls with our alumni have inspired them and their focus on how they can make the most of their time at Keele. Our student team will be able to answer many of your questions and I am sure will have many of their own as you talk about the unique Keele experience you both share.

Our students will also share Keele’s ambitious aims for the future and how our alumni community can get involved to help us achieve them. Our alumni are our best ambassadors; you can make a huge difference to advancing Keele now and in the future.

We are deeply grateful to our supporter community; the cumulative impact of many people joining together is transformational. Over 900 alumni have supported Keele; with donations totalling £500,000 since the Keele Key Fund was established in 2007, and by volunteering their time to give guest lectures, offer work placements or to host career tours for our current students, and providing testimonials of their Keele experience that we can share with current and prospective students.

Together, you make our Keele difference.

On behalf of Keele University and our student team, we very much look forward to speaking to you.

If you have not updated your details recently and therefore might miss out on this opportunity to chat to one our students, please update your details.
