Photos of 75 of the Faculty of Public Affairs’ most inspiring alumni are greeting new students as they arrive at Carleton’s MacOdrum Library.
From ambassadors to deputy ministers, economists to social workers, a larger-than-life display of the 75 for the 75th is attracting attention in the lobby’s main foyer.
“This is an opportunity for the Faculty of Public Affairs to highlight our amazing alumni,” explains Dean André Plourde of the Faculty of Public Affairs. “Each photo represents the story of someone who used their Carleton education to build an exciting career.”
The alumni featured in the display are part of the 75 for 75th project, in which the Faculty profiled 75 alumni for Carleton’s 75th anniversary. Many of them are returning on September 15th to attend a private dinner in their honour prior to the Currents Lecture featuring the Wall Street Journal‘s Chief Economics Commentator, Gregory Ip. Mr. Ip is one of the 75 for the 75th, representing Journalism and Economics.
