- The objective of having community representatives is to provide historical context or background from groups we wouldn’t normally be able to get input from (eg. Staff, Faculty, Graduates, KW Community).
- Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Become a class representative
Faculty of Mathematics welcomes its alumni back to campus to celebrate their graduation anniversaries every year! Alumni Weekend in 2021 will take place on June 5 and September 25. For a sample reunion program contact the Alumni Relations team.
Math Alumni Relations handles all reunion planning, administrative and promotional details and subsidizes the non-food costs of all 'official' reunion events. Class Reps are not expected to register classmates for these events. However, Class Reps are responsible for all planning, registration and financial details associated with any events they choose to create in addition to the official program.
While Math Alumni Relations actively promotes reunions, Class Representatives are essential to ensure strong alumni participation and a successful reunion. Each class celebrating their reunion needs at least one alumni volunteer Class Rep for each undergraduate department. Job sharing is encouraged, and up to three co-representatives per class are welcome.
Become an event volunteer
The Faculty of Mathematics hosts many events throughout the year. Most notably, lecture series, career panels and class reunions. Although these events are planned and administered by staff in the Faculty of Mathematics, alumni participation and volunteer assistance is always welcome and encouraged at our alumni events.
Alumni can assist with special events by consulting on the planning process, assisting with promotions or helping run the actual event. At any given event, alumni volunteers may be used to help set up a location, take registrations or introduce and thank speakers.
