After almost two years of sharing the stories of 75 alumni for Carleton’s 75th anniversary, our 75 for the 75th finally had a chance to meet one another in person.
This month, many of our 75 honoured alumni gathered for a dinner in Richcraft Hall prior to our annual FPA Currents Lecture. The room was buzzing with discussion and laughter as the alumni reconnected with old friends and professors, and met many fellow alumni for the first time.
The group was welcomed by Carleton University’s interim president, Alastair Summerlee, as well as André Plourde, Dean of the Faculty of Public Affairs. Each of the honoured alumni had a wrapped gift waiting for them at their seat. When Dean Plourde invited them to open it, they discovered a hardcover book created in honour of the project.
Following the dinner, the honoured guests attended the FPA Currents Lecture featuring one of the 75 for the 75th, Greg Ip of The Wall Street Journal. The newspaper’s Chief Economics Commentator, Mr. Ip delivered a talk entitled “How Resurgent Nationalism is Reshaping Economics and the World.”
All of us in the Faculty of Public Affairs were honoured to share this evening with our inspiring alumni. This special event was captured in a group photo of the honoured guests.
