UCL’s philanthropy and engagement campaign, It’s All Academic, has reached 263,000 volunteering hours, exceeding its ambitious target of 250,000 ahead of schedule.

Supporters have given their time in numerous ways since the Campaign’s launch in September 2016.

Career mentors have contributed almost 162,000 invaluable hours of support for UCL students and recent graduates. Life after UCL can feel daunting for many, but mentors prepare their mentees to enter their preferred industry through one-to-one support and sharing insights.

Alumni speakers have given more than 3,000 hours to the Campaign, inspiring and influencing students and peers by sharing their experiences.

Alumni clubs and networks, which host activities and support UCL alumni all across the globe, have also played a vital role in exceeding the volunteer-hours target. Club and network leaders work exceptionally hard to create inclusive, active communities, allowing UCL alumni to connect with fellow former students in their city or country, or with similar interests.

Other important volunteering activities that have contributed to exceeding the Campaign’s target include organising alumni events, advocacy and advising prospective students.
