Our Commemorative Biennium: two anniversaries in one celebratory period.

We have an exciting couple of years ahead:

  • 2020 is the 90th anniversary of the signing of the founding document for The Dominions Students' Hall Trust which is Goodenough College today.
  • 2021 is the 70th anniversary of the inauguration of the Lord Mayor’s National Fund for Thanksgiving which helped complete the foundation of the College through the building of William Goodenough House.

We have therefore combined these two major anniversaries into one celebratory period – which we are calling the Commemorative Biennium. It will take place across two academic years so that we can include both new cohorts of Members in the celebrations. We will launch today on Founders’ Day, Thursday 3 October 2019 and conclude on Founders’ Day in 2021.

These milestones represents a fantastic opportunity for us to celebrate everything that makes Goodenough College unique and so special to our Members, Alumni and partners. We’d love it if everyone can join in wherever possible.

Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be publishing more details about our Commemorative Biennium programme. Please be sure to visit this page for more details or sign up to our newsletter monthly newsletter The Goods
