We are Advancement. We are Essex.

We were founded on philanthropy, and we’re still thriving today thanks to the generosity of others. We are a community of staff, students, alumni, local people, and organisations. We expand our community every day, reaching more alumni than ever before. We give them events they love, and chances to network and volunteer, and talk to them as friends and peers. We work with our community to change students’ lives and help deliver life-changing research. We are global: tens of thousands of people in 130 countries carry Essex with them wherever they go – memories of their hours in the library, the lecture halls, the Hexagon, the theatres, the bar, by the lakes or on the Southend seafront. We are Essex, and Essex is for life.
