The 1890, the University of Greenwich alumni magazine


Launched by the Alumni & Development Team, the magazine is named after the year that Woolwich Polytechnic, the university’s forerunner, was founded as the second such institution in the UK.

The magazine celebrates the university community and heritage, as well as showcasing some of the internationally recognised work of Greenwich academics in the last academic year.1890

There are also stories from the alumni community, and a look at how voluntary and financial support from alumni, friends and university partners, is helping students.

Contributions in the latest issue include an introduction from Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane Harrington.

She said: "The 1890 is a space to celebrate, acknowledge and look forward. The last 12 months have been a challenging time for us all. We want to mark the achievements of our community, both before and since the pandemic reached us."

In addition, the 1890 also presents the first digital Supporter Roll, acknowledging alumni and friends for their voluntary and financial support in 2019/20.
