The Friends was founded in 2001.
The mission of the U.S. Friends of the University of Newcastle is to promote the excellence of the University. We will achieve this through:
1) Support engagement with the alumni network in the U.S. for the purpose of recreation, mutual support and aiding the University in its mission;
2) Building strong friendships with alumni and supporters who may be interested in supporting the University;
3) Encouraging U.S. student recruitment;
4) Raising funds.
