Many Cranfield alumni have given their time, skills, and energy over the years to support our students and the university’s activities, and are a testament to the rewards and fulfilment that volunteering can bring. Our volunteers choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons, for some, it offers the opportunity to give back to Cranfield and make a difference, while for others it gives them the chance to develop new skills.

Thank you volunteers!
