  • provides a Facebook page for Alumni to contact one another and exchange information, photos etc.
  • advocates sound social policy as appropriate
  • hosts an annual Distinguished Speakers Series, bringing leading-edge speakers to the Faculty
  • honours current students and Alumni who have made outstanding contributions to the Faculty and/or profession
