These included FIFA World Cup viewing parties held simultaneously in Atlanta, Stamford, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, and San Diego. In February, Boston alumni attended a presentation and dinner with Alumnus, The Honorable Albie Sachs. In April, UCT Young Alumni of NYC launched with a gathering at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.  In October, Vice-Chancellor Dr. Max Price visited with alumni at events in Cambridge, Massachusetts and New York City.  UCT’s U.S. alumni and friends celebrated the end of a high-spirited year with holiday gatherings in Houston, Chicago, New York and San Francisco.

The UCT Fund increased its regional network of volunteers from nine in 2009, to 30 by the end of 2010.  Cities represented included Chicago, Houston, Aspen, Denver, San Diego, Atlanta, Seattle, Boston, Brooklyn, New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and Stamford, Connecticut. The Fund also raised awareness of UCT through multiple new social media networks which accumulated just over 1,000 U.S. based followers.
