The Journalism program has produced great graduates over the years who have risen to the top of their fields in journalism, the public service, law, communications – all corners of the media and civil society.
A handful of them were back on campus to help celebrate the Faculty of Public Affairs’ “75 for the 75th” featuring prominent FPA alumni – including a dozen Journalism grads – in honour of Carleton’s 75th anniversary.
On hand to help celebrate: the head of News and Current Affairs at Société Radio-Canada, Michel Cormier (BJ ’79), the CBC’s Susan Ormiston (BJ ’81), the Globe‘s Mark MacKinnon (BJ ’97), Heba Aly (BJ ’06) of IRIN News, TSN’s James Duthie (BJ ’89), Politico’s Anca Gurzu (BJ ’09), the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner, Joe Friday (BJ ’83) – not to mention the Wall Street Journal‘s Greg Ip (BA Economics and Journalism ’89), who also delivered the annual Currents Lecture.
