This year, our campaign focusses on the world-class teaching Selwyn provides. The Sir David Harrison Fund is a major new initiative as part of our tribute to our late master, to support teaching in the sciences, engineering and maths. Teaching is at the heart of what we do as a college. There is nothing more important than instilling the next generation with the learning that they need, and this is an area in which we now need specific investment.
On Wednesday 8th November at Selwyn the first Vice-Chancellor’s Dialogue was launched by Professor Deborah Prentice, who became VC earlier this year. The aim is to hold a series of dialogues about some of the most difficult issues of our time.
The college is hosting a range of events in November – keep an eye on our social media feeds for daily updates – and there are two where demand is likely to be particularly high so booking is recommended.
The college welcomes the new undergraduate and postgraduate students who have joined Selwyn and the University of Cambridge this autumn. Traditional matriculation photographs took place in front of the Chapel for the undergraduate freshers and in front of the Hall for the postgraduates. We wish all our newcomers the greatest success in their studies, and they will have the support of everyone in the college community.
