Tea party with alumni

Tea Party

The Alumni and Donor Relations Office (ADRO) hosted a tea party on 19 December 2019 to celebrate the achievement of two of the University of Nottingham alumni, Professor Malachi Edwin Vethamani and Alicia Ch’ng. The party was hosted to celebrate the recent awards which they received.

The afternoon comprised a presentation, casual discussion, feedback and an inspiring talk shared by the alumni before ending with a photo session. ADRO also had the honour of presenting a special gift to both of them in recognition of their achievements and contributions to the University and community.

Professor Malachi Edwin Vethamani is a professor from the School of Modern English Literature at the School of English. He is a 2019 Vice-Chancellor Medal recipient, who received the medal because of his exceptional achievement and contributions to the university and within the local community. In addition, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences recognised and honoured him in Excellence in Teaching and Learning Award and Special Citation in Teaching and Learning for his achievement and sustained commitment to teaching excellence and student learning.

The year 2019 was a very successful year for Alicia Ch’ng (MBA, 2018), who is currently a Head of Careers Advisory Services at the University of Nottingham Malaysia. Recently, Malaysia’s 100 Leading Graduate Employers Awards named her department as the Best Career Centre of the Year 2019. Alicia, who is a career specialist and an experienced certified career development facilitator, believes in instilling the centre’s value statement - Do what you love, love what you do.

The Alumni and Donor Relations Office aims to increase alumni engagement, to get more alumni to participate in their activities and to inspire alumni to contribute to the community. Therefore, we encourage our alumni to share their achievements or award-winning stories with us in enhancing the image of the university alumni.
