Aboriginal alumni association created at Queen’s

November 5, 2014

Queen’s University has created an Aboriginal Alumni Chapter to connect graduates with current and prospective students. Online mentoring and networking will be the main focus of the chapter, although Janice Hill, Director of the Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre, notes that she wants to involve alumni who can give accounts of their time at Queen’s and make suggestions for improving programming. “I’ve told students that when you have a Queen’s education, you can go anywhere in the world. Your education isn’t just your diploma, it’s your network. And you don’t necessarily realize that when you’re young,” said Hill. Recruiting efforts are underway, and it is hoped an official launch can be held later this year. Queen’s News
