Your Alumni Community

A network of 35,000 alumni in more than 104 countries

During 2012, the Faculty of Social Sciences has strengthened its relationships with its 35,000 alumni scattered in more than 104 countries. The size and power of this network opens up all sorts of opportunities.

Rediscovering your university

There are many ways to stay in touch and help your alma mater! We are working at offering even more networking opportunities to our alumni living outside of the National Capital Region and we invite alumni to come back on campus to reconnect with former professors and classmates, to make new friends, and to help current students.

A win-win exchange: what your Faculty has to offer and how to get involved

The new Faculty of Social Sciences TABARET newsletter allows our alumni to stay tuned to what is going on at their alma on a monthly basis. We also offer exclusive benefits and services to our alumni. Those living abroad can celebrate their sense of belonging by gathering for reunions in their current residence. For instance, in 2012, reunions were held in Colorado, Paris and Hong Kong. Alumni are also invited to many conferences and receptions all year long, and contribute to campus life. For example, the series of lectures 'Deconstructing Success’ featured 10 Social Sciences alumni who built successful careers. Others will gladly hire COOP students, make an annual donation or even create a scholarship.

A legacy of success

Though our graduates are unique in their professions, passions and dreams, they share the pride of their hard-earned university degree and bring about positive change in society and in their own communities. Around the world, our graduates are our best ambassadors. Through their diverse experiences, our alumni enhance the reputation of our Faculty and enrich life on campus, making us even prouder to be part of the uOttawa story.

Following in the footsteps of alumni who have gone onto remarkable achievements, today’s social sciences students bask in this tradition of success. Visit the Faculty of Social Sciences Alumni Award page to find out more about their inspirational stories.
