About

2016-2017 Alumni Network Executive:

Chair: Andrew Do
Vice-Chair (Finance): Sabrina Parrotta
Vice-Chair (Communications): Vita Takarenka
Vice-Chair (Connections): Andrew Blackburn
Vice-Chair (Events): Creig Lamb

The Network has two central objectives:

1.       To maintain the connections and associations with the School and with each other in order to contribute to improve the policy discussion in Ontario and Canada, and
2.       To leverage the skills, knowledge and resources of the alumni collective to offer support to the School of Public Policy, students, staff and faculty.

In the coming months, we are going to address some governance questions regarding the group, including questions related to funding, fundraising, leadership, and our relationship to the School of Public Policy and Governance. We are going to research how other program’s Alumni Networks operate to help identify the best structure for our school.  If you are interested in participating in this conversation, please email sppg.alumni@gmail.com.

The Network is open to anyone who graduated from the School of Public Policy and Governance. We welcome anyone to join the leadership group, participate at any or all events, to contribute to the conversation in person or to send suggestions and ideas via email.Leadership committee meetings are irregular and will be advertised on the Alumni Website. Events will be communicated on this website and by email.

We hope that by staying connected we will maintain the spirit and enthusiasm for public policy that we shared while we were students by offering knowledge sharing, networking and professional development opportunities that leverage the diversity of the graduating classes.

We have a lot to learn from each other.

The alumni network has drafted an Action Plan.
