Sentamu retires

Submitted on 9 June 2020

The college wishes a long and happy retirement to its alumnus John Sentamu, who has stood down as Archbishop of York.

Dr Sentamu studied theology at Selwyn in the 1970s, and was awarded his PhD here in 1984. He is an honorary fellow of the college, and he keeps in close touch with news from Grange Road.

This piece in The Observer gives an account of his remarkable life:
