Surrey Leaders

Connect with leaders, re-connect with Surrey

A new alumni network bringing together an international group of peers excelling in their fields. Surrey Leaders will have access to three years of personal development opportunities including masterclasses, workshops and preferential access to university events.

The Surrey Leaders network has been made possible by a generous gift from YS Chi, Honorary Graduate and member of the University’s campaign board.

Surrey Leaders launch

We officially launched the Surrey Leaders network on 3 June 2024 at a special event held in the Palace of Westminster. It was a fantastic evening that also included the awarding of the 2023 Vice Chancellor's Alumni Awards. 

It was the first time that we gathered some of the Surrey Leaders together and attendees had the opportunity to speak with YS Chi whose generous gift has enabled this network to be created.
