Shawn & Kush Singh Distinguished Lecture Series

Shawn and Kush Singh

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.
