Alumni Association aims

We exist to further a number of core aims. Because we are formed exclusively of fellow Cuths alumni, you can get involved in any or all of these in whichever ways you like. You can also help suggest new types of activities to further our aims - we are always up for new ideas. 


What are the Alumni Association's aims? 

How do we meet these aims?
