Homecoming 2016

Issue: 

The best-attended Homecoming Brunch in the school’s history attracted more than 500 alumni, representing 21 classes, as well as faculty, staff and guests. Classes from as far back as 1948 returned to campus to reconnect with classmates and reminisce about their time as students. These memories were not so distant for members of the Commerce Class of 2016, who returned for Queen’s inaugural “Reunion-Zero”. 

During the Brunch, gifts totalling $1.76 million were presented to Dean Saunders by 15 classes — a credit to their very successful class-giving campaigns. These funds are being directed to Smith School of Business priorities, including innovative program development and student financial support. 

We were delighted to have Stephen Smith on hand to introduce the recipients of the inaugural Stephen J. R. Smith Chairs, Professors Tina Dacin, Yuri Levin and Steve Salterio. Homecoming also presented the opportunity to acknowledge the new inductees to the Faculty Hall of Fame, Professors Gordon Cassidy, Bob Crandall, Rick Jackson, Carl Lawrence and Ev Smyth.
