Robert Lemieux, Dean of the Faculty of Science, cordially invites you to attend the 2015 Science Alumni Recognition Awards Reception.
Since 2007, the Faculty of Science has cherished the tradition of honouring alumni who have distinguished themselves as outstanding professional and personal achievers in their chosen fields and who have loyally dedicated their time and service to their alma mater.
Our 2015 Science Alumni Award recipients are:
World Wetlands Day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on February 2nd 1971 in the Iranian city of Ramsar.
More than 30 science alumni working in traditional and non-traditional science careers will come together to share their career stories and answer questions about your future.
This career event will be informal and move quickly—like speed dating—with an opportunity to speak to science graduates individually or in small groups.
