Explore Georgia and Armenia with Oxford Alumni Travellers, 7- 22 September 2016
More than 600 alumni and guests took part in fascinating and enjoyable academic and social events during the first Alumni Weekend in the American capital.
Oxonians met Professor Louise Richardson, the University of Oxford’s new Vice-Chancellor, and heard from her about the latest developments at Oxford. Scholars and politicians also shared their timely thoughts about US politics, and the latest research on a range of topics, including medicine, the oceans, and the humanities. Highlights included the gala dinner at the Library of Congress – the world’s largest library – and a discussion about leadership with high-profile panelists, including Ambassador Susan Rice (Rhodes Scholar, New alumna), National Security Advisor to US President Barack Obama.
The Alumni Weekend in North America, organised by Oxford’s North American Office, took place on 8 and 9 April, and it was the first time the gathering had taken place outside New York, where it is usually held every two years. This year’s gala dinner attracted more alumni and guests than at the equivalent dinner during previous Alumni Weekends in New York.
At the dinner, the Rt Hon the Lord Patten of Barnes, CH, the Chancellor of the University of Oxford, highlighted his long-standing links to the US, where he worked as a political campaigner after graduating. He emphasised the special relationship between the UK and US, and how Oxford continues to educate many young Americans. Today, 1,500 Americans are studying at Oxford, and 26,000 Oxford alumni live in the US.
