Jesus College Perspectives Membership

We seek to attract members to help us sustain high quality of participation and frequent events, who also help us ensure that our outputs are of sufficiently high quality to make a transformative difference.

The membership scheme allows companies and individuals to become Jesus College Perspectives Members and enjoy a range of benefits including invitations to all Jesus College Perspectives Conferences, participation in conference advisory committee meetings on future topics, suggesting speakers and participants, and being featured in reports. Anonymous membership is also available.
