Every month for a year and a half, the Faculty of Public Affairs introduced five inspiring members of our alumni community to the public. Known as the 75 for the 75th, they were chosen by the chairs, directors and faculty in our academic units for their inspirational career paths.
In honour of Carleton’s 75th anniversary, these alumni shared their career stories, setbacks and triumphs with the Faculty’s alumni and friends.
At the conclusion of the project, writer Karen Kelly wrote a reflective piece about the lessons she drew from her discussions with these alumni, which can be found here.
On September 15, 2017, many of these alumni will be returning to campus for a private reception, followed by the Currents lecture with Gregory Ip, Chief Economics Commentator for The Wall Street Journal and one of the 75 for the 75th.
