On 25 November 2014, we commemorated the centenary of World War I through an event which reflected upon the impact the war had on the university and our community.
The event was led by the Chancellor, Mr Tom Bloxham, and the President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell. It featured student readings of letters written by those who served in World War I, as well as original musical contributions composed by current students.
This unique occasion commemorated staff and students associated with the University of Manchester whose lives were lost or changed forever during World War I.
