New York Alumni Reception Review

On Thursday 21 April, graduates and guests were invited to join us at an Alumni Reception in New York City.

Guests were joined on the evening by Professor Sugata Mitra, Professor of Education Technology at Newcastle University, TED Prize Winner, and the inspiration behind the film 'Slumdog Millionaire'.

Professor Mitra provided insight into current research at Newcastle University into Self-Organised Learning Environments (SOLEs). Thanks to the support of our alumni and friends, researchers at Newcastle University are transforming the lives of children around the world.

Graduates and friends spent the remainder of the evening reconnecting with each other over drinks and canapes in the fantastic surroundings of the Evercore, New York office, kindly hosted by fellow alumnus Nigel Dawn.
