Setting up a chapter

If you want to set up a new chapter, that's great! Chapters typically begin with one or more individuals willing to take on a leadership role and attract a group of enthusiastic alumni who want to join with them.

More formal groups usually start with three or four alumni who are prepared to take on the role of President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Events Organiser. Whichever route you choose, the University of Leicester will need an ‘official’ contact for the chapter.

We encourage chapter leads to be as inclusive as possible to all local alumni so that alumni from all career backgrounds, graduation years and degree subjects are included.

At present, there are University of Leicester chapters in:

  1. India
  2. Ghana
  3. Nigeria
  4. London

Get in touch with the Alumni Engagement Team to find out more about how you can start, or join, a chapter.
