For those alumni who are interested in giving back to the Department in other ways, we would welcome an opportunity to discuss this with you. In the past, alumni have generously provided financial support for a wide range of activities, including research projects, building work, postgraduate studentships, and field experience for undergraduates. If you are interested, or would just like to know more, then please get in touch with our dedicated alumni address: gg-alumni@durham.ac.uk.

Or, if you prefer, the University provides a secure site where you can donate directly to the Department.
