Development and Alumni Relations Office
The University of Sheffield aims to maintain strong links with our alumni (former students), friends, and supporters. A cohesive network of people linked to the University, and to each other, is continually developing all around the world.
Whether you've just graduated or have been away from us for a while, this website will help to keep you involved with your university and your fellow alumni. Of course, you don't have to have been a student here to want to stay in touch, so staff, parents, friends - all supporters of the University - are welcome.
The Development and Alumni Relations Office is the main point of contact for former students and friends who want to stay involved with, or support, their university.
In 2005 the University commissioned Sheffield artist Joe Scarborough to paint 'Our University', and sales of the prints raised over £18,000 for undergraduate scholarships. Joe was honoured with an honorary doctorate in 2008 in recognition of his contribution to the cultural life of the city.
The painting depicts the University of Sheffield both past and present in Joe's inimitable and colourful style. Joe is a former miner whose artistic works draw on his personal experiences and background to create a wealth of images of the life and people of South Yorkshire. His largest work to date - a vast mural depicting the history of Sheffield - dominates the main corridor at the Weston Park Museum.
To accompany Joe's latest piece we have reprinted a very limited number of the first from Joe's series of University prints. All proceeds will support the University’s Lung Disease research led by Dr Allan Lawrie.
These prints, measuring 19 x 17 inches are unframed and packed in protective cardboard tubes.
A companion piece to "Our University" and "Our Students´ Journey", “The Big Walk” celebrates the achievements of the Big Walk events and commemorates the life of Jane Riberzani, a former member of staff at the English Language Teaching Centre, who sadly died from a lung related illness in 2014.

This print has been made possible thanks to a generous donation from the Riberzani family to support Lung Disease research, and all proceeds from the sale of prints will be used to support our ongoing research into Lung Disease led by Dr Allan Lawrie.
We have both unsigned and a limited number of signed and numbered prints available.
The prints, measuring 19" x 17" are unframed and packed in protective cardboard tubes.
