50th Anniversary Celebration

50th Anniversary Celebration

Location: Atrium

Date and Time:
Tue 18 Oct 2016, 13:30 - 14:30

Tuesday 18 October is the University’s official 50th Anniversary. On this day in 1966 the Royal Charter was granted founding the University of Bradford. To mark this date all staff and students were invited to join us in the Atrium.

During the event Professor Brian Cantor, Vice-Chancellor, cut a special 50th Anniversary cake and locked away a 50th Anniversary time capsule alongside the 25th Anniversary time capsule that was opened earlier this year.

All staff and students in attendance were invited to enjoy some cake, inspect the items in the time capsule and toast the University a happy anniversary.

Staff and students were also invited to provide suggestions of items to be placed in the time capsule, that best represent the University, its student and staff population and experiences, research qualities and international outlook.
