Wadham Alumni Society
Founded in 1963, the Wadham Alumni Society is a community made up of all alumni of Wadham College.
- acts as a forum for contacts across generations and across subjects. The Society's annual dinner, to which members may bring a guest, and the more informal networking events, often attended by current members of the College, encourage the renewal of old associations and the making of new contacts. The Wadham Society is working to develop further networking opportunities.
- Wadham Society encourages links between former and current students and is working to develop these associations. Such links include 'inspiration' sessions in College, at which groups of alumni working in a particular sectors talk informally with current students, sharing their experiences and offering advice and support. The Wadham Society network of alumni also supports the College’s access initiatives to encourage a wider, more diverse, range of applicants to the College and to Oxford more generally.
- The Society distributes a regular sum of money from the College’s fundraising efforts towards projects that enhance the student experience, through the ‘WadSAS Committee’.
