Alumni Boards

Alumni provide advice and practical support to the College on matters ranging from development strategy and educational outreach to building local alumni communities. The Development Board and regional committees are the formal structures through which we seek that support from alumni to help further our organisational objectives.

The Development Committee

Within the College, the Development Committee provides support and direction to the Development Office. Its decisions are ratified by the College Council.

The International Programmes Office of St John’s College has built links with a number of outstanding schools in Japan. The St John’s Development Committee in Japan has designed a process to support and mentor the most exceptional Japanese students during the preparatory year leading to their application to Cambridge. The aim of the Committee is to attract those Japanese students who will bring academic contributions not only to the College but also to Japan and to the global international scene in the future.

It is a great achievement of the Committee that three undergraduate students from Japan will start their studies at St John’s in October 2020; we are confident that they will be excellent ambassadors for Japan in Cambridge. Membership is by invitation. The Chair is Dr Matthias Dörrzapf, Director of International Programmes.
