Welcome from the President

Bruce Sewell, SVP and General Counsel at Apple is also the President of the Friends of Lancaster University in America, Inc.

"More than 3,000 alumni of Lancaster University live in the United States. This includes Americans who spent their Junior Year Abroad at Lancaster during an American degree course, Americans like me, who gained a full degree at Lancaster, and alumni from Britain and other countries working in the States in our interconnected age. We are all part of Lancaster's rising global profile and can be proud of its international impact and achievements.

My fellow Directors and I helped set up the Friends - a 501(c) 3 organisation - in 2009 to make it easier for us all to maintain our connection with Lancaster. The Friends is about people - check out the profiles of our board members and supporters, and the students whose lives they have touched.  It's also about a sense of place - what makes Lancaster, set in a damp northwest corner of England, so special to us all?  And finally, it's about giving back, to help future generations create their own special memories as they prepare to make their way in the world with the help of their Lancaster education.

Of the more than 3,000 US-based Lancaster alumni, we do not have current contact information for at least a third. Please help us by registering on the Lancaster University Alumni website and keeping your own contact information up to date, and by encouraging your friends to update their own information.  Staying in touch, we can create a vibrant, growing network that will enrich all our lives."
