Wilfred Wong Renews Matching Gift!

Over the past two years, alumnus Dr Wilfred Wong (m. 1976) has very generously matched donations to St Catz, inspiring support for the College and raising significant funds for current and future students.

We are delighted to announce that Wilfred is matching gifts again this year. The College is deeply grateful for his generosity, and we hope that many in our community of alumni and friends will make a special matched gift. Single donations will be doubled and regular gifts will be tripled!*

Professor Nigel Hitchin awarded Shaw Prize in Mathematical Sciences

Congratulations to Honorary Fellow and former St Catz Maths tutor (1979-1990), Professor Nigel Hitchin, who has been awarded the Shaw Prize in Mathematical Sciences for his contributions to geometry, representation theory and theoretical physics.

The Master of St Catz, Professor Roger Ainsworth commented, "In giving me the news, the Head of Maths said 'I imagine that St Catherine's is one of the places that will take justifiable pride in this great achievement', which is most certainly the case."

Catz Alumnus appears on BBC4

Catz Alumnus Dr Robert Morrison (1984, English), appeared on BBC4’s The Secret Life of Books in November, a show hosted by John Cooper Clarke that explores how classic books shape life and culture. The fourth instalment in the second series of the programme was devoted to Thomas De Quincey’s most famous work, Confessions of an English Opium-Eater and contained two interviews with Dr Morrison, who is a leading expert on De Quincey.
