Mansfield College Alumni Association
Welcome to the Mansfield College Alumni Association (MCAA), the home of Mansfield’s alumni community.
Our members come from across the globe and have all enjoyed, at one point or another, the varied and wonderful experiences that Mansfield has to offer. Alongside them, the MCAA also includes a number of honorary members, who have joined the association as a consequence of their demonstrated commitment to the College.
The affairs of the Association are managed by a committee, elected at the AGM, normally held on the same day in June that the Commemoration, Annual Garden Party and Association Dinner take place. Its aims are to:
- Ensure an open and welcoming culture for all in the Mansfield community of students, staff and alumni, acting in accordance with the College’s Values and Ethos document and the official College Charter ;
- Help maintain a close association among the alumni community and promote strong links between the College, alumni and current students;
- Take an active role in engaging alumni by ensuring that Mansfield’s programme of events is well-promoted and caters for the interests and needs of the alumni community;
- Work in close partnership with the Development Office, helping to strengthen their active links with Mansfield alumni.
The Association Committee comprises a diverse group of alumni, from different subject backgrounds, spanning decades of attendance at the College.

The Committee typically meets every six weeks to provide a forum for discussion, develop new initiatives and receive updates from the College. [These meetings currently take place virtually.]
We would love to hear from members of the alumni community who are interested in building on the progressive, pioneering, and ambitious aims of the College, through the work of the Association Committee or by becoming an Alumni Ambassador. It is a great way of staying up to date with the College, connecting with friends old and new, and continuing to build on the superb work of Mansfield. Whilst we may not be the largest alumni group in Oxford, we are one which is full of ideas, enthusiasm, and a real sense of community. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch by sending us an email.
