Established in 1871 as a
house in which young women could reside while attending lectures in Cambridge, Newnham
College has and continues to champion academic excellence for women.
With its diverse and
welcoming community, current Senior Members of Newnham are engaged in
world-leading research across a wide range of fields, students enjoy a
comprehensive and well-rounded experience at College, and their highly engaged
alumnae have gone on to contribute to Newnham and wider society in many ways.
Following the successful
conclusion of the Changing Lives Campaign
in December 2014, Newnham has been strengthening relations with its alumnae
community through its extensive event programme and specific fundraising
projects. With the 150th anniversary of the College’s founding in
2021, there is an exciting opportunity for a new Development Director to
further build on the recent alumnae and philanthropic engagement efforts and play
a significant role in driving the success of the College for the future.
