Alumni from the Faculty of Social Sciences are proud ambassadors with an important role in improving our students academic experience. Across the country and around the world, we provide our alumni with the opportunity to stay connected to their alma mater, build their professional and personal networks, and volunteer in meaningful ways to strengthen the University’s reputation. Our alumni are taking part in more events and hiring more students through CO-OP and the Michaëlle Jean Centre for Global and Community Engagement. More than ever, alumni are coming to campus and sharing their insight and experience with current students, helping them make better-informed decisions and a successfully transition to the workforce. By reaching out, sharing their knowledge and building relationships, alumni are making a remarkable difference for our students and the future of education.
The Shawn and Khush Singh Distinguished Lecture Series brings renowned speakers to discuss important topics related to public policy, international affairs and geopolitics. The series is made possible thanks to the generous support of Shawn Singh (BSocSc ’99), proud alumnus, and his wife, Khush Singh. During Alumni Week, the Faculty of Social Sciences welcomed 160 participants to the launch of the series with guest speaker Charles Doran from Johns Hopkins University, one of the most influential American commentators on Canada-U.S relations. Professor Doran’s lecture was entitled “Canada-U.S. Relations: 100 Days into the Trump Administration.”
In September 2016, the Alumni Association launched the uO2.0 program, which helps future and young alumni prepare for the job market, offering them professional development events and services. As part of this new program, we presented the Deconstructing Success: How our Social Sciences Alumni built their careers series of talks. This series was organized for eight academic units and attracted 285 participants.
