Discussions begin on a new model for alumni reunions
The university and its alumni association are beginning conversations with campus and City partners to identify an alternative model for alumni reunions.
Several months ago, Principal Daniel Woolf asked the Office of Advancement to work with the Queen’s University Alumni Association and the Rector to initiate dialogue with student leaders, campus departments, City partners and members of the extended Queen’s community toward identifying an alternative model for university sanctioned fall reunions. This work is underway.
“I am confident the current work we are undertaking will provide a positive opportunity for alumni, students, and the City to engage with the university and one another,” says Principal Woolf. “I know that alumni value the fall reunion experience. I also know that the Queen’s community shares my concerns regarding the safety of our students, alumni, and City residents, and also concerns about the reputation of Queen’s and the City.”
The university will be seeking perspectives when students return in the fall on an alternative model for university sanctioned alumni reunions.
“I will need to consider many perspectives before making my decision,” says Principal Woolf.
Details about progress toward a new university sanctioned model for alumni reunions will be communicated as discussions move forward.
