Hello Alumni and Friends,

Hello Alumni and Friends,

A belated happy New Year! 2011 is well and truly launched and the winter term is underway.  This year Wilfrid Laurier University is celebrating its 100th anniversary.  The Laurier community will celebrate with special events throughout the year. If you would like more information go to the centennial website ( where you will find a historical timeline, event calendar, photo gallery and much more. If you would like to know more about Laurier’s history the library has posted several videos on YouTube. Go to the library website ( and you will find a link on the right side of the page.

This edition of Connections contains articles about one of our unique Professional Development workshops, a great fundraising activity that was organized by some of our MSW students, Sir Richard Bowlby’s visit to the Faculty of Social Work in September and information about coming events. More importantly, information about a former alumna, who is ill, is included. Any support you can give to her would be greatly appreciated.

We’d Love to Hear from You

If you’d like to share your social work success stories, offer suggestions for our Professional Development program, have an idea for the Connections newsletter, put together a class reunion or find out more about what’s happening in the faculty, please contact me at or 519-884-0710 ext. 5265.
