As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, throughout August we will be looking back at the Association's history and the wonderful archival material we have from our first 50 years. 

Pam McNay was President of the Students Association from 1981-1983 and became the first student to speak directly to the Open University's governing body. Read more on her groundbreaking address here:

We have had some inspirational Presidents over the past 50 years. You can see the timeline of their time in office below.

As you might imagine, since 1972, we have built up quite a bit of archive material, so this podcast looks at the Association’s archive project. This project has enabled us to catalogue and order our wonderful content to make it a true celebration of our first 50 years!
