Churchill College Association

The Churchill College Association was established to promote friendship between resident and non-resident members — Fellows, students and alumni. From the day you become a member of Churchill College you are a member of the Churchill College Association.



Membership affords the opportunity for Churchillians to maintain links with The College and each other. The Association organises a number of events which you are welcome to attend, in particular, the Churchill Association Annual Dinner, which takes place in September and coincides with the University’s Alumni Festival weekend. Other special interest groups, activities and events are organised throughout the year so please sign up for the College’s E-Bulletin and check the website for details.

The Churchill College Association Committee meets twice a year and its current Chair is Jayne Donora (U80). The Committee is always open to new ideas and feedback, and welcomes your involvement. It would especially welcome volunteers as year representatives.

Please get in touch and get involved – the Churchill College Association exists for all of you!

Year Group Reps

The list of decade reps on our Association Committee has now been expanded to include representative for each year, and we are thrilled to have Year Group Reps across every decade, from 1961 to 2018.

The Year Group Reps will help the College keep in touch with alumni from their year, suggest events or other initiatives the Alumni and Development office might undertake to maintain good relationships with alumni, Give feedback on the College’s plans for alumni and fundraising initiatives. They will also work with the College to encourage alumni from their year to attend events such as reunions, provide archival information and tell us what they have been up to since they left Churchill.
