Farewell to Rachael Barker

Rachael Barker, Head of Alumni

This week we say a fond farewell to Head of Alumni Relations and Development, Rachael Barker.

Rachael has been with USW for the last seven years and has overseen significant growth and transformation in our programming. 

Rachael adds: "it's been a real pleasure to have the opportunity to redesign the alumni and development programming here at USW. No two days have been the same! Be it developing activities for Big Weekend Worldwide or introducing new ways of recognising our graduate donors and volunteers, through to launching new communications, such as Luminate the alumni digital magazine or working with the Students' Union on the latest student-facing initiative."

We wish Rachael 'bon voyage' as she begins new adventures at Teesside University in Business Engagement and Enterprise.

The Alumni Relations and Development Office works with alumni, friends and supporters of the University. The Team helps alumni to deepen their ties with the University - and each other - and encourages them to support current students, research and University projects through gifts of time, advocacy, professional expertise and financial donations.
