We value alumni and would love to hear more about you, perhaps you have a unique story to tell. There are lots of ways you can engage with the Hall here are a few examples.
Join the alumni mentor program
By signing up for this program you have the chance to relive your time at the Hall and impart some wisdom on the student mentee. Perhaps you can connect them with someone in the business world, introduce them to a researcher in the field, give them their first opportunity at a research position within your area. Mentoring is a way to help a current resident to transition from university to the their future career. you can provide networking opportunities, advice on studies and general life help. To sign up for the program you just need to register on this site. Students will search for you based on your discipline of interest.
Register for a speaker event
Are you doing something groundbreaking? Are you challenging current beliefs. Do you have an inspirational story to tell? We would love to hear from you and can host an evening with a select audience at Burton & Garran Hall.
Use our talent pool to increase your research potential
Researching – it’s what we do. Are you in charge of a large government department? Are you the CEO of an organisation looking to reach out and make stronger connections with the Australian National University? Get in touch with us to discuss how we can partner with you in a range of different ways. Email David.Segal@anu.edu.au
Sponsor our sporting merchandise
Each year BAGMA (previously JCR) spends a large amount of their funds on sporting equipment, uniforms, oval hire. Your company name on this equipment would look great and help our students by reducing the costs to participate in sport.
Set up a scholarship for future students
Professor Herbert Burton left a significant amount of money for future Australian students in financial need. this money was not intended for scholarships however and with looming budget cuts the future is uncertain. If you are able to make a difference by donating we would be very interested in hearing from you. You can set the criteria for a scholarship and be part of the process of allocating these funds.
Become part of the reunion committee for 2015
We need to get the word out to all alumni. Of the last email which was sent out to over 2000 ex residents only 150 responded. Tell your friends there is something exciting coming. This is just the beginning of a new focus on alumni and we hope you will be a part of it.
If you are visiting Canberra send me an email and we can organise a tour for you.
I hope to hear from you soon.
