Alumni and Friends
Mentors and Memories
If students are the lifeblood of ALES and faculty the vital organs, alumni are the bones of our organization. Not the dusty skeletons of museum display but the indispensable structure containing the marrow of what the Faculty of ALES is all about. Your stories mentor our prospective and current students and memories of your previous discoveries keep us moving forward as we search for solutions to the globe’s most urgent problems.
Keep in touch with us. Enjoy our publications. Attend your alumni events. Join us as we endeavour to strengthen your contributions with exciting new discoveries.
