Membership of the Robert Mitchell Society is offered to those who kindly donate between £1,000 and £9,999.99.

The Society is named after Robert Mitchell, who dedicated more than 50 years of his life to the success of our predecessor, the Regent Street Polytechnic, as the organisation’s first Secretary and later its first Director of Education (the Vice-Chancellor of the day). Among many other achievements, he was the driving force behind the development of the technical classes, founded the Polytechnic Touring Association, took an active part in the organisation of the 1908 Olympic Games, and oversaw the rebuilding of 309 Regent Street in 1910–11.
