Glendon Connect series
Glendon Connect is a collaborative project between the Advancement and Alumni Office, the Career and Skills Development Centre, the Research and Innovation Office, and the Office of Student Affairs.
The series aims to prepare current students and recent graduates for their future careers by providing them with the opportunity to connect with our alumni community, ask questions and learn from their example as leaders in their respective fields. These initiatives highlight our alumni as change makers as they come forward volunteers to speak about their professional experiences and share their time with our students as mentors.
The Glendon Connect series features three alumni panel events – two of which are coming soon – and an alumni mentorship program that will be launching in early 2022.
